This article presents a quadruple band-notched MIMO-UWB antenna with circular polarization (CP) characteristics in some frequency ranges. The monopole antenna has inverted L-shaped slots on the radiator element to create notches at 3.2GHz to 3.8GHz (Wi-MAX), 4.4GHz to 4.99GHz (military UAV, radio astronomy service, and public safety), 5.125GHz to 5.75GHz (WLAN), and 7.2GHz to 7.9GHz (x-band satellite communication). The circular polarization characteristics occurred over more than a 2GHz range with a center frequency of 10.8 GHz by truncating the radiating patch. The antenna has a radiation efficiency greater than 70% in the ultra-wideband range of 2.7–12.3GHz except for notched bands. The MIMO antenna has good diversity performance and uses a neutralization line (NL) for decoupling the closely placed monopole antennas. The experimental and simulated results are revealed for validity check.
