A kind of reconfigurable wide slot UWB antenna integrated with stepped impedance resonators (SIRs) and ideal switches is presented. The proposed antenna 1 has dual notch band functions which are obtained by using two stepped impedance stub loaded SIRs. The three reconfigurable models are investigated and discussed. The measurement results with ideals switches demonstrate the performances of proposed reconfigurable antennas. The designed reconfigurable antennas can be suitable for future multi-mode wireless communications systems.
