In this paper, wideband rectangular microstrip patch antenna with numerous step slots etched on the patch and slotted reduced ground plane has been designed with wide impedance bandwidth and minimal return loss, suitable to be effectively utilized for WLAN, Wi-MAX and IMT applications. The antenna has been designed and simulated using CST Microwave Studio 2010. The simulated antenna is a dual resonant antenna having two resonant frequencies of 3.8 GHz and 5 GHz with adequate bandwidth of 4.2857GHz and minimal return loss of -30dB and -46dB respectively.
