A broadband compact antenna is implemented by modifying the full ground plane metamaterial antenna. The strip matching ground is used to enhance the impedance matching by 800% compared to the full ground plane case while maintaining its compact size as 1/10 lambda0 by 12 size of antenna ground plane. Planar inverted F antenna (PIFA) is also known for its compact size and its capability to easily operate at multiple frequencies. The simulated and measured results demonstrate that the proposed antenna should be a potential candidate to use in the modern wireless communication system.
