A novel and compact dual band antenna design for mobile and satellite application is proposed and studied in this paper. The proposed antenna consists of a ground plane having square slot with a rectangular patch at the centre, which is printed on the top of the substrate. A simple 50Ω microstrip line having width 3.08mm is used to excite the parasitic patch from the backside of the substrate. Through some changes like reduction in ground slot, variation in the slots at patch and by impedance matching, gain and bandwidth of the proposed antenna is improved. The proposed antenna is simulated by HFSS program using finite element method .The simulated antenna have two band, radiates over 1.77-2.24GHz and 3.40-4.12GHz frequency ranges. The proposed antenna is capable of covering multiple mobile communication bands (DECT,PCS,PHS), WiMAX band and fixed satellite application.To prove that the proposed design is a promising candidate for the aforementioned wireless technologies,important antenna parameter such as return loss, radiation pattern,peak gains and VSWR in the operating bands have been simulated and studied in detail.
