In this paper, the authors have presented a novel design of reconfigurable ultra wideband micro strip patch antenna used for wireless applications. The antenna can be reconfigured for two frequencies using two switches. These switches help in changing the frequency of operation by changing the surface current distribution. When both the switches are on, antenna operates at two frequencies i.e. at 3.5GHz and 5.8GHz with a good isolation bandwidth. When the switches are off antenna operates at 3.5GHz.
