An electrically small metamaterial-inspired antenna is presented and discussed. The antenna requires a small foot print of λ/5 × λ/10 where λ is the wavelength corresponding to the resonant frequency, when printed on a substrate of dielectric constant 4.4 and thickness 1.6mm. The antenna offers a 2:1 VSWR from 750MHz-1.4GHz which covers CDMA, GSM and ISM bands. A top loaded monopole with a meandered element ground plane constitutes the antenna structure.
