In this paper, a printed wide-slot antenna fed by a microstrip line with a rotated slot for bandwidth enhancement is proposed and experimentally studied. Impedance, radiation, and gain characteristics of this antenna are presented and discussed. From experimental results, the measured impedance bandwidth, defined by 10 dB return loss, can reach an operating bandwidth of 2.2 GHz at operating frequencies around 4.5 GHz, which is about four times that of a conventional microstrip-line-fed printed wide-slot antenna. Also, the antenna gain within the operating band is measured and studied, and a 2-dB gain bandwidth of at least 1 GHz is achieved.
