Abstract : The characteristics of low-profile, broadband, monopole vehicle antenna designs are obtained and evaluated. This thesis describes the techniques for analysis of these antennas both numerically and experimentally. The results of these investigations are contrasted to develop an optimum design. In addition, the automated synthesis of broadband impedance matching networks was accomplished using the Real Frequency Method as well as a modification of this method.
