A novel and simple design of wideband coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed bow-tie slot antennas with multiple band-stop characteristics featuring multi-network applications is presented. A frequency stop band can be created by embedding the slot with a pair of stubs, which causes the resultant magnetic fields almost counterbalance in the slot and to be non-responsive at the desire stop band. The effects of the dimensions of the stub on the stop band are also analysed. Dual band-stop characteristic is also accomplished by embedding two pairs of stubs in the slot. Details of the proposed designs and experimental results of the constructed prototypes are presented.
