In this work,a compact printed spiral monopole antenna operating in the FM frequency band (88-108 MHz) is reported. The antenna is printed on a 100mm x 50mm PCB layer providing more than 20MHz bandwidth at -2 dB threshold and is easily fabricated with low manufacturing cost. The antenna was also measured and simulated on 900mm x 900mm ground plane which is representative of a vehicle roof.
