In this paper a decagon microstrip antenna for Ultra-Wide Band operation is proposed. A microstrip feed is used to feed the radiating patch. The ground plane of the antenna is defected with length below the patch. The proposed antenna is compact in size of 28 × 26 × 1.6 mm. This antenna is designed using FR4 substrate material that is readily available and cost effective. It’s reflection coefficient S11 < −10 dB 3–40 GHz. This proposed antenna operates from 3 GHz to 40 GHz covering UWB, Ku, K, Ka bands.
