This paper proposes a novel Ultra Wideband (UWB) tapered slot antenna (TSA) to achieve both enhanced impedance bandwidth for UWB RF front-ends and band-stop characteristic of 5GHz WLAN band limited by IEEE802.11a and HIPERLAN/2. To obtain these two characteristics of wideband and band-stop at TSA, a broadband microstrip-slotline transition with multi-arm stubs and λ/4 short stubs are used respectively. From the measured results, it can be shown that wide bandwidth of 1.99 octaves from 2.8 to 11.09 GHz for VSWR<2 is obtained while 5.05-5.93 GHz band is rejected.
