The analysis of Multiband Microstrip Antenna (MSA) using Neural Network (NN) through Radial Basis Function (RBF) has been descibed in this paper. Two parallel slots have been inserted on the patch of MSA. The estimation of bandwidth with the variation of these slots has been trained and tested using ANN. The antenna resonates at frequencies 2.465 GHz, 3.455 GHz, and 5.17 GHz with obtained fractional bandwidth of 5.601 MHz, 8.09 MHz, and 16.80 MHz, respectively. The geometry of antenna is then simulated using HFSS simulation software. The results are measured and tested using vector network analyzer. The frequency bands meet the design specification of covering the WLAN and WiMAX application at C-band.
