In this paper, a new quad-band small size microstrip handset antenna covering Global System for Mobile communication (GSM900), Global Poisoning System (GPS1500), Digital Communication System (DCS1800), and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN2450) bands is presented. The antenna has a single feed and a shorting pin to reduce its size. The design is simulated and optimized for two different dielectric substrates. Details of the antenna are discussed along with simulated results. Simulation results are obtained using the HFSS commercial software which is based on the finite element method and compared to measured results and good results are obtained.
