A planar monopole UWB antenna with microstrip feed is developed. Two unit cells of electromagnetic band gap [EBG] were added beside
the feed line. By adjusting the EBG dimensions, and changing gap between EBG and feed line, any notch frequency can be obtained through the
entire UWB frequency band. Antenna structure with different dimensions was examined using HFSS simulator.
