In this letter, the impact of a magneto-dielectric resonator on a DVB-H antenna is investigated. A frequency reconfigurable antenna using a folded monopole antenna structure and varactor diodes is proposed. Two different designs are realized with and without the resonator. A measured instantaneous -6-dB bandwidth wider than 8 MHz is obtained continuously between 470 and 862 MHz for both prototypes. Design methodology is described. Measured return loss, gain, directivity, and radiation pattern are presented for different frequencies.
