A novel dual-band antenna for wearable WLAN computing applications is introduced. This antenna comprises three discs and a coaxial post. Its appearance is of a standard metal button of the type used in denim jeans. The antenna is easily disguised and less sensitive to clothing than printed patches, which use the textile fabric as a substrate or superstrate. The antenna requires no external matching circuitry and operates at 2400 and 5200 MHz. The radiation patterns are omnidirectional around the central post of the antenna.
