A reconfigurable printed monopole antenna covering WLAN, LTE, WiMAX and HiperLAN communication bands is presented in this paper. The antenna operates between these frequencies with activation of 2 switches. The proposed antenna is a low profile, miniaturised design and occupies a volume of 20 × 25 × 0.5(25mm 3 ) which makes it an ideal candidate to slot into compact and portable devices. Initial results including antenna design, S-Parameters, Radiation Characteristics and Peak gain at different frequencies is presented and discussed.
