The investigations on rectangular-slot-loaded and V-slot-loaded proximity-coupled microstrip antennas are reported. The performances of two antennas are investigated for the application in wireless local area network 2 (HIPERLAN/2) using IE3D software and the computed results are verified by measurement. Results show that the antennas have wide bandwidth and moderate gain and may be used as small, compact antennas for HIPERLAN/2 communication.
