This paper presents a frequency reconfigurable cedarshaped fractal antenna. The special shape of the patch makes it simpler to integrate RF switches to connect consecutive branches. The proper activation/deactivation of the switches alters the current flow and changes the resonance frequency. Simulated and measured results show the characteristics of the presented design.
