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: - A design of the compact antenna with band-notched characteristic using a Split Ring Resonator (SRR) etched at the ground plane, is proposed. The proposed antenna has a bandwidth of 4.3 GHz from 2.09 to 6.39 GHz, except one notched band from 3.19 GHz to 3.93 GHz for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) application. A good agreement was observed between the simulated and measured results
