A compact dual-WLAN-band antenna, in the shape of a paper clip, is presented. The antenna can easily be manufactured by bending few times a single copper wire with a length of about 65 mm, and operates in the 2.4 and 5.2 GHz bands in the WLAN environment. In addition to the simple configuration, the antenna is easily fed by 50- mini-coaxial cable, which allows it flexibility in a defined location for installation. An experimental prototype of the proposed antenna with the overall dimensions about 5 mm x 23.5 mm is constructed, tested, and demonstrated.
