Abstract: This paper proposes a dual band reconfigurable microstrip slotted antenna for supporting the wireless local area network (WLAN) and worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) applications, providing coverage where both directive and omni-directive radiations are needed. The design consists of a feedline, a ground plane with two slots and two gaps between them to provide the switching capability and a 1.6 mm thick flame retardant 4 (FR4) substrate (dielectric constant Ɛ=4.3, loss tangent δ=0.019), modeling an antenna size of 30x35x1.6 mm3. The EM simulation, which was carried out using the connected speech test (CST) studio suite 2017, generated dual wide bands of 40% (2-3 GHz) with -55 dB of S11 and 24% (5.2-6.6 GHz) higher than its predecessors with lower complexity and -60 dB of S11 in addition to the radiation pattern versatility while maintaining lower power consumption. Moreover, the antenna produced omnidirectional radiation patterns with over than 40% bandwith at 2.4 GHz and directional radiation patterns with 24% bandwith at the 5.8 GHz band. Furthermore, a comprehensive review of previously proposed designs has also been made and compared with current work.
