A wide band Minoan double axe antenna fed by a Co- Planar Waveguide for achieving omni-directional radiation pattern is presented. The proposed antenna is suitable for WLAN 5.2(5.15-5.35GHz) band, WiMAX 2.5/3.5(2.52.69GHz, 3.4-3.69GHz) bands, HiperLAN2 (5.47-5.725 GHz) and HiSWaNa (5.15-5.25GHz) wireless application bands. The antenna offers 76% of 2:1 VSWR bandwidth from 2.7GHz to 5.7GHz. This configuration delivers broader bandwidth with acceptable gain and efficiency for a linearly polarized radiation. The simulated and measured reflection characteristics of the antenna along with the radiation patterns and gain are presented and discussed.
