Ground antennas are suitable for use in mobile electronic devices due to their compactness. These ground antennas incorporate two capacitors for controlling the resonance frequency and a shorting loop for impedance matching. In this work, we compare the performance of a ground antenna with that of a meandered inverted-F antenna (IFA). It is numerically and experimentally shown that a ground antenna can yield simultaneous improvements in both the antenna size and radiation efficiency when compared to the meandered IFA. The bandwidth of the ground antenna for a voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) of 3:1 is 240 MHz from 2350 MHz to 2590 MHz, while the minimum total antenna efficiency is 62% within the 2.4 GHz ISM band.
