This paper introduces a miniature narrow band antenna for high performance systems using the WiMAX unlicensed band (5.470-5.725 GHz). This performance is achieved as a result of a low VSWR circle and “Q” quality factor. The antenna return loss (RL), VSWR circle and “Q” quality factor contour will be shown. Owing to its compact design this antenna is suitable for equipment integration as small as mobile handsets.
