- Wireless communication systems are evolving to- ward multi functionality. This multi functionality provides users with options of connecting to different kinds of wire- less services for different purposes at different times. It is highly desirable to develop single radiating element having capabilities of performing different functions and/or multi- band operation in order to minimize the antennae’s weight and area to enhance portability.The proposed recon gurable Circular Patch antenna is a good candidate for X band communication. Circular Patch Antenna designed, simulated at 8.5 GHz successfully. The same antenna was made capable for frequency tuning by using varactor diode at optimized position and achieved from 6.5 GHz to 8.2 GHz in simulation and 7.6 GHz to 8.6 GHz and 10.4 to 11.6 GHz in practical. Three varactor diodes were used at optimized positions only for making the antenna tunable at different resonant frequencies without changing any other parameter and preventing the mode splitting.
