This paper introduces a novel small antenna structures – meanderly folded patch antennas – and discusses performance properties of several miniaturized versions. All antenna versions operate on the basic mode TM010. The influence of the number of meanders, size of the antenna, quality factor Q, frequency bandwidth BW and directivity is discussed.
