Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The simple printed monopole antenna for dual-band operation with tunability is proposed. It uses the ground shorted inset sleeve of which the length is controlled. This type of antenna can easily produce dual-band characteristics without any additional metal strips or radiating elements. The omni-directional radiation patterns at both design frequencies are similar to those of a conventional monopole. Details of the proposed monopole design and experimental results are demonstrated in this letter.
