Abstract: Now-a-days, there is a tremendous demand for the antennas having multiband operation and wideband characteristics for wireless communications. This paper expresses the design of 1.7 GHz multiband Planar Inverted F Antenna which can be much useful in areas like terrestrial wireless communication, low earth satellites and sometimes as intermediate frequency for satellite television. The design exemplifies much better return loss at 3.9 GHz and 5.15 GHz which are more favorable band in WLAN and WIMAX applications. In this paper, the radiating patch is given the meandered shape in order to achieve the multiband operation of the antenna. The result shows that the antenna gives gain of 5.8 dB and also offer good impedance bandwidth. The antenna is of 22mm x 22mm in area.
