A new technique was applied to design miniature multi-band whip-type monopole antennas. Monopole or whip-type antennas are used in mobile and ground-based communication systems. The designs are realized by connecting very narrow stubs at strategic locations along the length of a monopole or whip. A genetic algorithm was used to achieve a size reduction of over 30% while simultaneously optimizing for multi-band operation without the need for traps.
