Other annular-slot antennas with strip-loaded [12,13] or different structure of tuning stub [14] are proposed for better impedance matching.
With the given slot perimeter and tuning stub length, the resonance is obtained at 3.
To design slot antennas with band notch function, one simple and effective way is to incorporate slots (known as half-wave resonant structures) in the antenna's tuning stub with U-shape [15], T-shape [8], C-shape slots [8, 12] etc.
However, the reactance of the second slot must be compensated by a matching network that consists of a simple radial tuning stub.

A shorted, variable length tuning stub was added to the fifth port to provide an extra tuning adjustment.
To design slot antennas with band-notched function, one simple and effective way is to incorporate slots (known as half-wave resonant structures) in the antenna's tuning stub, such as a U-shaped [27], V-shaped [3], C-shaped slots [27, 28], etc.
