Minkowski technique is proposed in this paper in order to design dual-band microstrip antenna with frequency bands of 1.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz. The conventional microstrip patch antenna has single band in which its return loss is -25.92 dB at 2.4 GHz. The CST simulated results show that when Minkowski fractal microstrip antenna is designed, the antenna operates with two frequency bands for return loss of -19.301 dB and -39.575 dB at 1.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz respectively. The antenna is fabricated on FR-4 substrate with permittivity of 4.3 and thickness of 1.6 mm.
