The quad-band antenna, which is composed of two compact dual-band antennas, is presented for potable media player (PMP) applications. The antenna for the broadcasting dual-band (DVB-H UHF; 470 - 862 - MHz, L; 1452 - 1492 - MHz) is composed of a planar inverted F-shaped antenna with an input matching circuit. The antenna for the communication dual-band (WLAN 11b; 2.4 - 2.5 - GHz, 11a; 5.15 - 5.8 - GHz) is composed of a folded dipole antenna with enhanced mutual coupling. The proposed antennas are contact with the PMP case (??r = 3.2) which is used as a substrate for size reduction and compact design.
