In conclusion, a novel planar PCB multiband antenna with parasitic element is proposed in this paper. Using only two simple radiating elements, the antenna operates with three separate resonant modes, covering six popular communication bands. The antenna area only occupies a small physical space (18 times 37 times 0.6 mm3). This simple planar PCB structure makes the antenna fabrication very cost effective. The proposed antenna performs a stable gain level and omni-directional patterns in the desired bands.
