A triple-band coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed LI-shaped monopole antenna is proposed. The antenna is composed of an I-shaped monopole and a meandered L-shaped one. The dimensions of the design are 29 times 28 mm which are 0.077 lambda times 0.075 lambda in terms of the lowest operating frequency of 800 MHz. The antenna operation presents attractive characteristics, each monopole is independently optimised to the resonant frequency and the impedance bandwidth without affecting those of other bands. The antenna shows improved radiation efficiency of individual monopoles for a global system for mobile communication, personal communication systems, digital communication systems, and wireless code division multiple access applications.
