A wideband monopole antenna in a conical structure with a cylindrical element to promote the UHF band cover and indoor use is presented. Experimental results demonstrated that the proposed antenna can operate at the frequency band from 469MHz to 1387MHz which VSWR<2. The bandwidth of the proposed antenna cover the DVT-B, LTE700, GSM850, and GSM900 bands. The project was made to be a lower cost and easy construction. The antenna shows peak gain of 3.3dBi. In addition, simulation radiation patterns of the proposed antenna is presented. The measured results of a fabricated antenna agreed well with the simulation results. The proposed antenna has a simple structure and good performance and is a suitable candidate for digital TV applications.
