A compact triple-band microstrip slot antenna applied to WLAN/WiMAX applications is proposed in this letter. This antenna has a simpler structure than other antennas designed for realizing triple-band characteristics. It is just composed of a microstrip feed line, a substrate, and a ground plane on which some simple slots are etched. Then, to prove the validation of the design, a prototype is fabricated and measured. The experimental data show that the antenna can provide three impedance bandwidths of 600 MHz centered at 2.7 GHz, 430 MHz centered at 3.5 GHz, and 1300 MHz centered at 5.6 GHz.
