A compact wide band reconfigurable bandpass filter (BPF) which utilises a hemi-circular flower shaped multimode resonator (MMR) is presented. The proposed MMR provides three resonant modes which fall within the broad frequency spectra. Among these, two modes are even and one is odd. These modes are optimised by varying the dimensions so as to obtain the desired frequency response. The fractional bandwidth is more than 96 per cent. The filter can be operated as multi-band BPF. In OFF condition

'Pin' diode, the centre frequencies are 2.43 GHz, 3.5 GHz, and 5.9 GHz in ON condition of 'Pin' diode centre frequencies are 2.43 GHz, 3.5 GHz, 5.9 GHz, 6.5 GHz, and 8.8 GHz which are used for vehicular, WiMAX, intelligent transportation systems and satellite communication respectively. Microstrip filter structures are integrated with 'Pin' diodes. Appropriate biasing has been provided by choosing lumped components with precise values. The insertion loss in OFF condition are 0.5 dB, 0.67 dB, and 0.8 dB and in ON condition 0.5 dB, 0.7 dB, 1.2 dB, and 1.9 dB. The measured results agree well with the full-wave simulated results.
