The paper describes a novel inverted-L antenna which comprises a short planar monopole loaded with two linear elements. This small antenna is shown to have impedance bandwidth up to 100 % for 6 dB return loss. Antenna parameters such as impedance bandwidth, gain and pattern stability are examined and the measured data are in good agreement with a MoM/UTD analysis.
