A planar microstrip-fed super wideband monopole antenna is initially proposed. By embedding a semielliptically fractal-complementary slot into the asymmetrical ground plane, a 10-dB bandwidth of 172% (1.44-18.8 GHz) is achieved with ratio bandwidth >;12:1. Furthermore, the proposed antenna also demonstrated a wide 14-dB bandwidth from 5.4 to 12.5 GHz, which is suitable for UWB outdoor propagation. This proposed antenna is able to cover the DVB-H in L-band (for PMP), DCS, PCS, UMTS, Bluetooth, WiMAX2500, LTE2600, and UWB bands.
