Abstract (en)

Antenna apparatus, and an associated method, for a mobile station, or other radio device. A folded conducting strip is formed upon multiple sides of a cube-shaped, or other three-dimensional substrate of small dimensions. The conducting strip exhibits resonance at multiple frequencies, such as at frequencies encompassing the 800/900/1800/1900/2200 MHz frequencies. Because of the positioning of the conducting strip upon the multiple sides of the substrate, a conducting strip of increase length is provided while permitting the dimensional requirements of the antenna structure to be small. Multiple antennas are able to be positioned at the radio device to provide for multiple-input, multiple-output radio operation.
