In this paper, the radiation pattern of the monopole antenna mounted on the portable phone is analyzed. The analyzed model consists of a rectangular conductor box and a monopole antenna. Even though the radiation pattern of the monopole has been well known, the monopole antenna mounted on the portable phone has not been fully studied. Because of the conductor box, portable phone acts as an unbalanced dipole antenna whoe radiation patterns deviate fro those of th econventional isolated monopole antenna. Therefore, the analysis of the radiation patterns of unbalanced dopole antenna is necessary. Using the moment method, its radiation patterns are analyzed and the numerical results are verified through the measurements. In addition, the radiation patterns depending on various length of the conductor box and the monopole antenna are also presented and the dimension of the portable phone which gives excellent radiation characteristics are derived from the analyzed results.
