Abstract: The design of a novel microstrip fractal fork antenna with parasitic patch and double substrate layers for Broad Casting applications has been proposed. The proposed antenna can be used in military satellite communications, weather monitoring, air traffic control, terrestrial broadband, and amateur radio. The antenna’s dimensions are 40mm*40mm*2.3mm. The antenna has shown a return loss of -50.89dB at 9.54GHz. Far field pattern is calculated at 9.54GHz. The entire simulation is done using CST Microwave Studio.
Keywords: Antenna, Broad Casting Applications, Far Field Pattern, Fork, Fractal, Micro Strip And Return Loss.
