Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: In this paper, the design procedure of triangular patch antennas is presented here. The antennas are compatible with the frequency interval of wireless communication systems. The design, simulation and experimental results are included for both antennas, where these antennas are based in one or two isosceles triangles. The first antenna has only one triangle in the patch, and the another one is a bowtie antenna, which involves two triangles with the same feeding point. The parameters employed in order to evaluate the two structures were the S11 parameter, the bandwidth, the radiation patterns and the antenna gain.
