We report in this paper a novel miniaturized (12 × 18 × 1.6 mm3) microstrip fed UWB antenna with tunable notched band characteristics. The proposed antenna covers the tunable notched band for IEEE 802.11a wireless local area network operating in the frequency band of 5.15–5.825 GHz. The design of proposed antenna includes annular ring radiating patch with two T-shaped strips present inside it. The band notching is obtained by adjusting coupling between T-shaped strips placed inside the annular ring. In order to achieve larger bandwidth the ground plane of the microstrip antenna is modified. The simulated return loss of the proposed antenna has been verified in fabricated antenna experimentally, which has been in good agreement.
