Ultra-wide band technology is the most promising solution to achieve high speed data communication. This paper presents a printed anchor shaped antenna with a rectangular ground plane which belongs to the class of printed monopole antenna and is small (20.25cm2), compact, conformal and provides an ultra-wide band performance giving very good omnidirectional radiation pattern similar to monopole antenna. It has an impedance bandwidth of more than 1:7 and a constant group delay over this range.
