This paper introduces a folded planar monopole antenna, which has a very low profile of about one twentieth of the wavelength of the lowest operating frequency. The effect is achieved by using a bended rectangular radiating patch and an inverted L-shape ground plane. The proposed antenna can be used in multiband operation, with omnidirectional radiation patterns for all operating bands. Its impedance bandwidth, determined by 10 dB return loss, covers almost all present wireless communication systems: Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM), Digital Communication System (DCS), Personal Communication System (PCS), Universal Mobile Communication System (UMTS), and Industrial Science Medical (ISM) band. This paper presents the design and experimental results of the proposed antenna. Moreover, the study also investigates the tuning effects of the geometry parameters on impedance matching.
