A newly design technique for enhancing Bandwidth that improves the performance of a conventional microstrip patch antenna is proposed. This paper presents a novel wideband slot antenna. The design adopts contemporary techniques; A single slot patch antenna structure. The effect of these techniques and by introducing the novel single shaped patch, offer a low profile, broadband, high gain, and compact antenna element. The result showed satisfactory performance with maximum achievable return loss - 37.5db and a fractional impedance bandwidth of 2.3GHZ-2.6GHZ. The design is suitable for mobile communication, satellite communication & WPAN.
