This paper describes the proposed novel broadband and high gain suspended plate antenna and its feeding structure. It is very applicable for applications which include GSM, UMTS, WLAN and LTE Wi-Max technologies. Simulations are performed using a commercial EM software package, additionally suspended plate antenna is realized and validated by measurements. From the network analyzer and anechoic chamber measurements of the proposed antenna, impedance bandwidth of 58% obtained between the frequencies of 1.735GHz and 3.145GHz, and measured antenna gain range is between 6.4dBi to 9.3dBi for the given frequency band.
