This editorial paper presents a small rectangular monopole antenna for UWB and X band with frequency rejection group of WiMAX (3.3–3.7 GHz). An antenna acquires frequency range starting from 2.86 to12.54 GHz. The frequency rejection band is obtained by creating the W-shaped slot in rectangular radiation patch. The antenna is designed on Rogers RO4003 substrate of size 12.0 × 18.0 × 1.6 mm3. The parametric analysis of VSWR, impedance bandwidth, return loss, gain, input impedance, radiation pattern, etc., of antenna is computed using CST microwave studio.
