The purpose of this paper is to explore the presented design of a hand-pump shaped microstrip antenna for sub-6 GHz 5G communication. This paper will first provide a brief overview of the antenna design and its capabilities. Meaning, overall impressive dimensions of 25.25 mm x 20.75 mm x 1.55 mm, with S11 being -16.82 dB at operating frequency of 5.16 GHz. Next, the paper will discuss the design of the antenna and how it can be optimized with a sub-6 GHz operating frequency, along with requirements. To reach the required specifications, inc. E- ≥ 5 GHz ≥ E-φ; S11 ≤-10, various geometrical parameters, among others, have been tested, resulting in two slots being added (slot a and slot b), in combination with various slits. Finally, an antenna is produced, and laboratory measurements are carried out for the validation of the results. Further discussing the potential benefits and drawbacks of using this antenna design for 5G applications.
