    Hi, I drew two types of PCB trace antennas in MS Paint (the best I can do for now).
    The PCB would be mounted on it's side, so you're essentially looking at a vertical monopole with poor ground plane.

    I intuitively drew in both magnetic (H) and electric (E) field lines, the way I think they would look. Can somebody confirm if this seems about right?

    Looks reasonable.

    You could try the program MMANA to model an antenna but I do not think the figures will be as pretty.
