This paper proposes several antennas designed to satisfy both dimension and frequency constraints of a handset. The proposed antennas are modeled and simulated in CST software. After multiple iterations, the final antenna designs are manufactured using both a milling machine and a 3D printer. The fabricated antennas are measured using a network analyzer and compared to their expected simulation results.
