Abstract: This paper propose the design of microstrip antenna which is used in cellular communication application especially at LTE network. The antenna was printed using FR-4 substrate material with dielectric constant of εr =4.4 and thickness of h = 1.6 mm. The overall dimension of the antenna is 135mm x 32 mm x 1.6 mm with 50 Ω impedance. This antenna operates between 400 MHz to 900 MHz for return loss of less than -10 dB. The simulation results suggest that the antenna gain is 4.725 dB with omni-directional radiation pattern. The antenna is designed to operate in the 2800 MHz, 4100-6200 MHz, and 8.85 GHz 10.00GHz, frequency bands. The characterization of the antenna in free-space as well as in the proximity of the user hand is presented. The results confirm the excellent performance of the proposed diversity antenna.
