In this paper, compact conformal antenna is proposed for vehicle to X (V2X) communications applications. The Hexagonal shaped geometry is applied in design to attain desired band in the vehicular communication spectrum. The proposed dimension antenna is 50mm x 50mm x 1.6mm. By loading hexagonal patch and annular slot with different size at each angle, it realizes to enhance bandwidth and increase the gain. This article explain how we found that tuning and overlapping of resonant frequency mainly achieved by hexagonal parasitic element. The prototype antenna has been design using Ansys HFSS v.15. The simulation result show that the antenna has resonant frequency at 5.9GHz with return loss value 32.95dB. The antenna has VSWR value 1.0189. Because the thickness of the antenna is 1.6mm, it is easy to fit up hidden in front of a vehicle for vehicular communication.
