Abstract: A novel arrow shaped planar multiband antenna based on apollonian gasket and Soddy’s circle with Defective Ground Structure (DGS) is described in this paper. The structure is designed on an FR4_epoxy substrate (εr=4.4).The performance is evaluated using HFSS software. The antenna displays multiband behaviour in the frequency range from 3 to 10 GHz which is suitable for wireless communications applications.The antenna gives tri-frequency response in LTE range(600 MHz6GHz):1.17 GHz, 3.44 GHz and 6 GHz;and tetra frequency response in the UWB frequency range(3 GHz to 10 GHz): 8.1 GHz, 9.5 GHz, 11.8 GHz & 13.5 GHz which could be used in wireless and radar communications.The overall performance of the antenna demonstrates an average impedance bandwidth(IBW) of 300 MHz with a good impedance matching (S11< -10 dB).The proposed antenna has the satisfactory radiation characteristics throughout its operating band. The measured highest gain differs from 1 dBi to 1.9 dBi inthe entire frequency range.
