A compact two notch-loaded patch antenna with multiple shorting pins for X and Ku band applications is presented. Two different substrates FR-4 and RT Duroid 5880 are used to compare the antenna characteristics. Multiple shorting pins are used to enhance the bandwidth and gain of antenna. Volume of the proposed antenna is 785 mm3, and it resonates at 10.5 GHz and 14.65 GHz with impedance bandwidth of 10.2% and 6.49% and gain of 7.42 dBi and 12 dBi, respectively. This antenna is useful for X band and Ku band applications.
