In recent years demand for small antennas on wireless communication has increased the interest of research work on compact micro-strip antenna design among microwaves and wireless engineers. To support the high mobility necessity for a wireless telecommunication device, a small and light weight antenna is likely to be preferred. For this purpose compact micro-strip antenna is one of the most suitable applications. A single layer, single feed compact rectangular antenna is proposed. Resonant frequency has been reduced drastically by cutting three unequal rectangular slots at the edge of the patch & also small rectangular slots connected with the middle of the every patch. Antenna size has been reduced by 47.4% with an increased frequency ratio when compared to a conventional square micro-strip patch antenna.
