A reconfigurable antenna with switchable multiband functionalities is presented. The antenna operates one at a time at five adjacent frequency subbands in the upper ultrawideband (UWB) frequency band of 6.0–10.6 GHz. The switching from one subband to another is done electronically by means of five PIN diode switches. The antenna also has a nearly omnidirectional radiation pattern, with vertical polarization at each of its frequency subbands. Simulated and measured results are compared and are shown to be in good agreement.
