In this paper, W-slot microstrip antenna is explored to obtain multiband resonance. The proposed design shows three resonance frequencies which pivot on the structure of W-slot in the radiating patch. The frequency range of the proposed antenna is between 5 and 10 GHz. The operating bands are at 5.1, 8.3, 9.5 GHz and is suitable for C and X bands. The results are analysed on HFSS simulator.
