A band notch characteristic using a unequi-arm H-shaped conductor element is used for designing a Tapered-Slot ultra wideband (UWB) antenna that can be useful in rejection of the higher band assigned for wireless local area network, with a targeted application in UWB wireless body area network. Based on the simulation and measurement results, a band notched tapered slot UWB antenna using a unequi-arm H-shaped conductor proves to be effective in rejecting unwanted frequency in terms of its selectivity and small real estate.
