In this paper, the broadband FCMA(Folded Cross Monopole Antenna), which is the cross monopole antenna with the folded element, is presented. To investigate the broadband characteristics of FCMA the VSWR, the gain, and the radiation pattern are calculated in frequency between 1.75 GHz and 2.655 GHz. From the calculated result, it is shown that the presented folded cross monopole antenna has a excellent band characteristics than the existing cross monopole antenna. The presented antenna is conformed as a broadband antenna which can be used for the indoor antenna of PCS, WCDMA, Wibro, and satellite DMB band.
