A novel and compact inverted V-shaped slot loaded patch antenna is presented. The proposed antenna comprises of an inverted V-shaped slot, two rectangular slots, and one vertical notch which are connected to each other on the patch, two via hole for shorting ground and patch. Intermediate and final designs are simulated for comparison. The performance analysis of these antennas is compared and analyzed in terms of return loss and gain. The proposed antenna resonates at three frequency bands at resonating frequency of 12.5 GHz, 25.8 GHz, and 28.8 GHz having impedance bandwidth of 6%, 19.45%, and 20.61% with peak gain of 4 dBi, 8 dBi, and 9 dBi, respectively. The first resonating band is useful for Ku band, second is useful for K band, and third is useful for Ka band and 5G applications.
