A novel microstrip-fed printed monopole antenna is proposed for WLAN and WiMAX applications.Using a modified fork-shaped strip,an impedance bandwidth covering 2.4 GHz WLAN band is obtained.In addition,a fork-shaped parasitic plane is inserted on the bottom of the FR4 substrate to cover 5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN and 5.5 GHz WiMAX bands.Omnidirectional radiation patterns with appreciable gains over the operating bands are obtained by the fabricated antenna.The antenna is suitable for multi-band wireless communication applications.
