A one-sided directional ultra wide band slot dipole antenna with floating metal layer on the bottom side was presented and used for a body area network (BAN) measurements and influence of male and female bodies on the antenna performance was compared and discussed, The return loss (S11) curves are presented and discussed on various locations on the male and female body to clarify the difference of male and female body effect on the antenna performance
