In this paper, a hexa-to-hexa-shaped fractal antenna with four iterations is presented for multiband applications. The substrate material employed for the design is FR-4 substrate with a dielectric constant of 4.4. The corresponding thickness is 1.6 mm and the other dimensions are 35 mm. The proposed antenna is designed and simulated with the help of electromagnetic tools. The observed parameters like reflection coefficient, VSWR, far-field patterns, fabricated prototype, and validated with vector network analyzer result up to 15 GHz. The antenna resonates at five different frequencies like 5.87 GHz, 9.83 GHz, 13.43 GHz, 14.63 GHz, and 18.6 GHz. The operating bands are referred as C-band/X-band/Ku-band applications.
