Abstract: Multiband reconfigurable antennas are receiving increasing importance in modern wireless communication systems supporting multiservice applications. The main advantage is the reduction in the size of wireless devices and allowing more space for other electronic components to be fitted. A widely tunable antenna using PIN switches was presented in [1]. Reconfigurable multiband antennas for wireless systems including satellite and terrestrial applications were reported in [2, 3]. This paper presents a new technique to electrically control the resonant frequencies by using a varactor diode. The antenna has an H-shape structure fed by a coplanar waveguide (CPW). It can generate and control up to three resonant frequencies to be used in GPS, GSM and Bluetooth/WLAN applications.
