A broadband antenna integrated with the system ground plane of the Portable Media Player (PMP) device for digital television (DTV) signal reception is proposed. The antenna comprises of a quarter-wavelength monopole and a gaps-coupled open loop antenna that can generate two adjacent resonant modes to form a wide operation band. Result shows a wide bandwidth of 464-856 MHz to cover the DTV signal reception in 470-806 MHz band. Details of the proposed antenna designs and experimental results of the construct prototypes are presented.
