Analysis and design of simple antenna geometries for broadband high frequency communications.
Fourie, Andries Petrus Cronje.
The general argument of the thesis is that the design of broadband antennas demands a thorough understanding of the factors influencing the current distribution on antenna wires. Specifically. current distribution concepts are used to improve the evaluation and design of small broadband antennas for the high frequency (HF) 2 to 30 MHz range. The current distribution on an antenna governs its input impedance, radiation efficiency and radiation patterns. (Abbreviation abstract)
