Abstract: In recent years, great interest is focused on microstrip antennas for their small volumes, low profiles, good integration, low costs and good performance. With the continuous growth of wireless and mobile communication service and the constant miniaturization of communication equipment, there are higher demands for the volume of antennas, integration and working band. This paper presents a basic square shaped microstrip patch antenna for wireless communications system which is suitable for 8GHz to 11 GHz band operations. These systems may include various combinations of WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) and wireless local-area network (WLAN). A square microstrip patch antenna is designed to operate at 9.4GHz and 11GHz. A triangular slot is cut in the square patch to provide three bands at resonant frequency of 8.36MHZ, 9.84MHz and 11GHZ. The effect of cutting the slot on the original patch is examined. This design has several advantages as the total antenna volume can be reused, and therefore the overall antenna will be compact. The results confirm good performance of the single and multiband antenna design.
