This paper presents a planar monopole antenna with slits and a stub for multi-band operation in vehicles. The proposed antenna is at least 55% smaller than the regular rectangular monopole antenna and covers eight wireless application bands. Slits cut into the rectangular monopole alter the surface current paths so that the band coverage is expanded. A long bent-stub is also added to cover the lowest service band.
