With the emergence and acceptance of the Ultra Wide-Band (UWB) impulse radio technology in the USA, there has been considerable research effort put into UWB radio technology worldwide. Recently, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC)'s allocation of the frequency band 3.1-10.6GHz for commercial use has sparked attention on Ultra-WideBand (UWB) antenna technology in the industry and academia. Several antenna configurations have been studied for UWB applications. However, the frequency band of UWB communication systems includes the IEEE 802.11a frequency band; i.e., 5.15-5.825GHz.
