	%X This paper presents a novel fractal antenna structure
proposed for UWB (Ultra – Wideband) applications. The frequency
band 3.1-10.6GHz released by FCC (Federal Communication
Commission) as the commercial operation of UWB has been chosen
as frequency range for this antenna based on coplanar waveguide
(CPW) feed and circular shapes fulfilled according to fractal
geometry. The proposed antenna is validated and designed by using
an FR4 substrate with overall area of 34x43 mm2. The simulated
results performed by CST-Microwave Studio and compared by ADS
(Advanced Design System) show good matching input impedance
with return loss less than -10dB between 2.9 GHz and 11 GHz.
