Abstract

Fractals antennas are similar and independent of scale. A fractal antenna is a one that uses a fractal shapes to increase the length of the patch that can Trans-receive electromagnetic radiation within a given total surface area. This paper gives a fractal shaped reconfigurable antenna with switches; switches used here is microstrip switch, alteration of it provides the various resonant frequencies. Copper strip itself is used as the switch to avoid certain drawbacks which occurs during the usage of other switches. The frequency of the designed prototype operates in the S-Band and it can be varied from 3.594 GHz to 3.9 GHz
