In this paper, a low-profile multiband antenna with a dielectric pellet for multiple applications is designed. The original design is able to provide a wide bandwidth to cover several useful communication bands. Investigations of the influences from the ground plane dimension, feeding line position and the coupling between the radiator and ground plane provide the possibility to improve the antenna performance. Using the coupling between radiator and ground plane, the bandwidth can be further increased towards the higher side of the frequency spectrum. It is finally optimized to cover the DCS1800, PCS1900, UMTS, WiMax and WLAN IEEE 802.11 a/b/g frequency bands.
