In this paper, hexagonal fractal antenna is investigated for wide band applications. The proposed antenna is made by removing the equilateral triangles of required dimensions. Modified line feed is used for designing the antenna to achieve wide bandwidth ranging from 1.751Ghz to 2.856Ghz with a bandwidth 47.97%. In the present work size reduction has been achieved. It offers gain of 2.88dBi, directivity of 3.12dBi and antenna efficiency of 94.57% at 1.95Ghz resonant frequency. This antenna is suitable for WLAN, WiMAX and Bluetooth applications. The proposed antenna is simulated by IE3D Zeland simulation software based on method of moments.
