Abstract—A novel printed monopole antenna using slotted meandering line is proposed for UWB application. The novelty of the design is obtained by using a slotted meandering line to reduce the surface area of the antenna structure without degrading the original frequency band. The conducting surface area of the proposed antenna is 70 mm2, which is 46% less compared to the reference antenna. The overall size of the proposed antenna is 18% reduced as compared to the reference antenna is achieved in this paper. The antenna has been constructed on low-cost 1.6 mm thick FR4 substrate. The proposed antenna operates between 2.73 – 10.73 GHz and stable radiation patterns are achieved over entire UWB band. The proposed antenna is fabricated and tested. The Measured results are in good agreement with simulated results.
