This article summa-rizes the design, construction and experimental results for a new wideband minia-turized antenna operat-ing in the 1.9 GHz band. This antenna is intended for handset applications, and may also be used as an element in a larger array. Using short-ing pins at the zero-potential plane, a compact antenna with a 21 percent bandwidth was designed and tested, with quite good agree-ment between measured data and the perfor-mance predicted by simulation.
