A penta-band slotted microstrip patch antenna for wireless applications operating in the frequency range of 2-25GHz is designed and simulated. Four pentagonal slots in radiating patch and a square slot in ground plane are introduced to get improved antenna parameters. The proposed antenna resonated at five resonant frequencies 11.373GHz with return loss -42.63dB, 16.85GHz with return loss -13.52dB, 18.67GHz with return loss -11.75dB, 21.56GHz with return loss -16.72dB and 24.28GHz with return loss-5.26dB resulting in five frequency bands.
