A modified rectangular Microstrip slot antenna for numerous applications like WLAN, Wi-Fi 5, satellite telecommunication and 5G application is portrayed. The proposed antenna has dimension of 25×30×1.6 mm3. The structure consists of partial ground and DGS. The proposed design is embedded on FR4 lossy substrate having dielectric constant of 4.3 and thickness of 1.6 mm. Two similar inverted L shape CLLR are introduced at left and right edge of the ground plane to improve current distribution and to achieve wide bandwidth. The results like reflection coefficient, surface current, gain, directivity, VSWR, impedance and radiation pattern are found up to the mark.
