In this letter, we present a new triple-band planar antenna, a non-uniform meandered and fork-type grounded antenna (NMFGA), for mobile communication systems. The antenna is designed for triple-band operations at 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, and 2450 MHz bands. A prototype of the NMFGA was constructed and studied. Measured and simulated return loss and measured radiation patterns were obtained. The experimental results demonstrate the attractive bandwidth and radiation performance of the newly developed antenna for all the three bands.
