A stacked notched rectangular microstrip patch antenna for WLAN applications has been presented in this paper. The desired band is obtained by tuning the dimensions of notches and size of the stacked driven and parasitic patches. The same aspect ratio is maintained for both the patches and their respective notches. The bandwidth and gain of this antenna is(More)
