A new microstrip-fed monopole antenna with simple planar structure of size 24x28x1.6mm3 is presented for Ultra-WideBand (UWB) applications. The antenna structure consists of V-shaped patch, microstrip-fed line and partial ground plane structure. With the inclusion of U-shaped slot on to the patch, a frequency notched characteristics is achieved which can reject the frequency band of 5.15- 5.825GHz. The effects of dimensional parameters on antenna performance such as length and width of U shaped slot, size of the ground plane have been investigated through a parametric study and design results from parametric simulations are presented.
