This paper proposes serially arranged two parasitic elements above a fed dipole to obtain broad bandwidth in resonant frequency of a parasitic element. The above antenna can be used in triple-bands with one feed point. Its design method using FDTD is also presented. Next, application of the triple-bands antenna is proposed for 3-sector base station antenna. Its characteristics of return loss and radiation patterns are indicated. Calculated values are in good agreement with measured ones.
