A printed pentaband antenna for mobile handsets application is proposed in this letter. This antenna consists of a printed nonuniform meander line with perpendicular feed and open-stub structure, making it easy to operate in code-division multiple access (CDMA, 824-894 MHz), Global System for Mobile communications (GSM, 880-960 MHz), digital communication system (DCS, 1710-1880 MHz), personal communication system (PCS, 1850-1990 MHz), and wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA, 1920-2170 MHz). The experimental results of the constructed prototype are evidenced by mitigating the degradation of antenna bandwidth due to human head and hand effect, and the measurement results of specific absorption rate (SAR) are also presented.
