The characteristics of indoor transparent antenna are investigated. The purpose of the antenna is applied for television signal reception which is operating at Ultra High Frequency band. The antenna was made from silver coated polyester film (AgHT-4), the transparent con-ductive material and it is attached on a layer of glass substrate. The antenna size has width and length of 120mm × 150 mm. It was fed by a co-planar waveguide due to the opportunity of low ra-diation loss and to reduce reflection of the antenna. The frequency range of 500MHz to 800MHz is chosen as it is the UHF television reception band and allocated by Federal Communications Commission. Due to the television station provided in Malaysia, each station have different channel with its own specification frequencies. The channels also are based on the transmitter base station location. Since the proposed project launches at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Skudai, Johor, Malaysia so all the channel is following the frequency from GunungPulai, Johor transmitter base station. The channel utilizations are Channel 55 (742-750 MHz): TV1, Chan-nel 26 (510-518 MHz): TV3, Channel 42 (638-646 MHz): NTV7, Channel 44 (654-662 MHz): TV9 and Channel 46 (670-678 MHz): 8TV. Then, the proposed antenna was designed by using Computer Simulation Software (CST) Microwave Studio to obtain the simulation result. The simulated bandwidth of the antenna obtained is 448MHz (502MHz to 950 MHz) with bandwidth of 61.71%. It has a potential to be realized for TV reception because of the omni-directional radiation pattern and gain is more than 2.0 dBi.
