In this paper, printed rectangular monopole antenna, which is basically printed microstrip patch antenna with partial ground plane, is designed for mobile base station. The substrate FR4 with a relative permittivity of 4.4 and thickness 1.8 is used in design. In addition, the printed monopole antenna is of low profile in appearance and suitable for most application. The proposed antenna can cover GSM1900 (1850¬¬¬-1990 MHz) and UMTS (1920-2170 MHz) bands. Design and simulation processes are carried out with the aid of FEKO software, which is used for the analysis of electromagnetic problems. Simulation results of the return loss, gain, and radiation patterns are presented.
