A planar elliptic broadband antenna with reconfigurable dual stop-bands performance was successfully designed and performed for multi-standard wireless communication systems. The proposed antenna consists of a broadband micro-strip fed printed monopole operating in the frequency range 0.75-6GHz. The notch-band characteristic was obtained by printing two Open Loop Resonators (OLRs) on the front side of the substrate close to the micro-strip feed-line. By adjusting the OLRs parameters, mono or dual band-rejection can be obtained. The passive broadband antenna was optimized to achieve narrow band rejection over the UMTS-band (around 2.1GHz) and the Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) band (around 3.5GHz).
