A compact monopole antenna having dual band characteristics using shorted metallic patches is presented. To get impedance matching for the SMA conductor, the antenna is fed up by probe feeding technique. The shorted metallic patches are made by square patches which are connected to the ground plane by the shorting pins. SMPs are used to improve the gain of the antenna. The dimensions and position of the SMPs and the position and dimension of the slot with respect to the patch are important and studied in this paper.
