A frequency-reconfigurable microstrip patch switchable to slot antenna is proposed. The antenna is capable of frequency switching at nine different frequency bands between 1.98 and 3.59 GHz. The patch is resonating at 3.59 GHz, while the slot produces eight different operating frequencies between 1.98 and 3.41 GHz. Five RF p-i-n diode switches are positioned in the slot to achieve frequency reconfigurability. Simulated and measured results are used to demonstrate the performance of the antenna. The simulated and measured return losses, together with the radiation patterns, are presented.
