Abstract: This paper presents the fabrication of an octagonal fractal hybrid micro strip radiator patch antenna that operates over a frequency range of 1.5 GHz to 2GHz suitable for low frequency wireless and mobile applications. The radiator has a dimension of 85x85mm2 on the radiating side and 100x86mm2 ground plane. The model is fabricated on Fire Redundant4 substrate with thickness of 1.6mm over a 10x10mm2 dimension and uses coaxial feeding technique. The model is tested for its performance in the range of 1.5 to 2 GHz on the radiator test bench consists of MIC10 antenna trainer kit with an allowable frequency of up to 2GHz. The radiation characteristics shown are having good return loss and average gain of 39dB with omni directional radiation pattern. The size is to be optimized as the dimensions are very large compared to the usual requirements.
