In this paper, a monopole antenna with rectangular elements for dual band capabilities was presented. This design was an improvement from the traditional monopole patch antenna by adding slits and truncated ground plane. The proposed antenna was designed for dual band operations for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) at 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz. The design improved the return loss and bandwidth for these two frequency bands. Calculation and measurement showed that the return loss exceeded the minimum design specification and the bandwidths for those bands were covered completely.
