This communication proposes a compact multiband antenna fed by microstrip coupling for handsets with conducting edge applications. The antenna is composed of a U-shaped loop, an inserted open-end T-shaped slot, and a feed line with a compact antenna area. Three types of resonant modes are excited, namely loop mode, slot mode, and monopole mode. Parametric studies have been performed. After the related parameters are controlled, the bandwidth of this antenna has the potential to cover the mobile bands of GSM (824-960 MHz), DCS (1710-1880 MHz), PCS (1850-1990 MHz), UMTS (1920-2170 MHz), LTE bands (FDD-LTE bands 1-10, 15, 16, 18-20, 22, 23, 25-27, and 30 and TDD-LTE bands 33-43). Good radiation characteristics, such as gain and radiation efficiency, are obtained with these operating bands. In addition, the structure of the inserted slot antenna reduced the user's hand effects on the radiation efficiency.
