Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) is an emerging wireless technology for commercial high-data-rate, short range communications, radar systems and measurement. In this paper, the authors present a printed leaf shaped antenna with a rectangular ground plane which belongs to the class of printed monopole antenna and is small (16 cm2), 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 around 10.25GHz (return loss less than 10dB) ranging from 3.0251GHz-13.2848GHz and a constant group delay over this range.
