In this paper, a compact printed monopole square-shape meandering line antenna for ultra-wideband (UWB) application with dual band-notched characteristic is presented. Voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) < 2 is obtained from 2.6 to 12 GHz except over two notched bands from 3.5 to 4.5 GHz, WiMAX/C-band satellite communication, and 5.0–5.5 GHz, WLAN applications. By introducing a small-size four-corner symmetry plane (FCSP) and square patch with single disconnected loop (SPSDL) EBGs structure, placed on near the feed line and back side of the radiating patch, two band-notched frequencies have been achieved. The proposed antenna is small in size with a compact EBG structure and offers nearly omnidirectional radiation pattern for UWB application.
