This article proposed a reactive loaded dipole antenna for Wireless Communication. A dipole antenna with reactive loads are operated in the range of 10 MHz–600 MHz. The amount of loading circuits and their position, the parameter values are quantified using Genetic Algorithm Optimizer and simulate the proposed design using 3D EM CST Microwave studio tool. The reactive load can enrich the antenna characteristics to produce maximum gain and S11 Parameter and then compare the simulated results of antenna performance for with and without load.
