A novel compact microstrip line-fed ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna is reported in this paper. The antenna consists of a corrugated half-ellipse monopole and three strips that act as near-field resonant parasitic (NFRP) elements. The entire UWB band (3.1–10.6 GHz) is covered from a very compact size: 19 mm × 10 mm. Two of the NFRP strips are utilized to cover more effectively the lower portion of the UWB frequency range; the third one improves the broadside gain values by 3.28 dB in the upper portion. As a consequence, this compact design maintains a stable radiation performance over the entire UWB band.
