A novel G-shaped antenna with a coplanar waveguide (CPW) feed is proposed. The advantages of a CPW feed are to simplify the antenna structure with a single metallic level and reduce the antenna size. Operating resonant modes of the proposed antenna are related to the length of two folded monopoles. A face-to-face structure of two folded monopoles is yielded to broaden the lower and upper bands. The measured return loss, radiation patterns, and gains are presented.
