In this paper a size reduction technique of the Planar Inverted F Antenna (PIFA) is presented. Using an 18 nH lumped inductor in addition to a small 0.3 cm3 PIFA located on a 5 mm thick dielectric foam above a 40 x 100 mm2 ground plane it is possible to reduce the resonant frequency by 33 % for a fixed physical size. The measured –6 dB bandwidth is 6.7% with a peak radiation efficiency of 88 %.
