Since the demand of the mobile devices is increasing, when the mobility is concerned, the miniaturization techniques of circuits, circuit components and antennas are become popular beside reducing the size of the devices. However, it should be noted that, the size reduction should not affect the operating frequencies of the mobile device. In this paper, a practical approach is presented to reduce the size of a planar microstrip patch antenna to achieve lower frequencies. which is based on cutting the antenna into slots in shape of saw teeth.
