A novel multiband dipole antenna for GSM and LTE application is presented in this paper. The antenna is comprised of two radiation dipoles which are orthogonal to each other, a pair of microstrip stubs and a pair of coaxial cable. The antenna is designed for dual-band operation (i.e., at 1.45 and 2.6 GHz) and multiband operation (i.e., 0.9, 1.4, 2.1 and 2.6 GHz). Also, an additional spike is introduced between each half of the dipole antenna which further achieves multiband operation at 0.94, 1.42, 2.19 and 2.76 GHz. The design of the antenna element has been completed using IE3D software. The antenna is placed upon and under the FR4 substrate, having a dielectric constant value of 4.4 and a thickness of 0.8 mm.
