The wideband antennas such as PICA, Vivaldi, volcano, log-periodic, spirals and so on have been developed for wireless communication related applications. The planar monopole antenna can be formed with different shapes such as circle, square, elliptical, bow tie, trapezoidal, hexagonal and pentagonal. Also many non-planar metal antennas are reported for wideband application. The study of planar circular monopole antenna has been reported. In this paper, a newly designed Shorted Planar Quasi Semicircular Monopole Antenna (SPQSMA) yields dual band characteristic and compact size.
