In this paper, we present an antenna design for multiband
applications which can cover the GSM 900 (890-960 MHz),
DCS (1710– 1880 MHz) and PCS (1850–1990 MHz), UMTS (1920–
2170 MHz), and WLAN2.4GHz (2400-2484MHz) frequency bands.
A prototype is built and measured. Results of return loss, radiation
patterns, and efficiency are given. The antenna is small, cheap to
manufacture, has a low profile and would be suitable for wearable
applications, mobile phones and base stations.
