Abstract—A novel single element KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) sign shape, and two element array (Ultra Wide Band) KSA sign shape slot microstrip antennas are presented. A novel KSA sign shape EBG cells are applied to reduce the mutual coupling between array elements with the same shape. The results show that a reduction in mutual coupling of 8 dB is achieved at first band (2.1 - 2.99) GHz and 33 dB at second band (5 – 9.43) GHz. The microstrip array was studied by CST simulator and fabricated by proto laser machine with precision 25μm. The antenna can be used in the military or RFID applications.

Index Terms—Microstrip patch antenna, mutual coupling, EBG, KSA sign shape.
