The analysis of a spherical antenna-type ionosphere probe is given. The change in input admittance upon immersion of the antenna in a magnetoionic medium is evaluated by expressing the field as the sum of the free-space field and a secondary field. The secondary field is evaluated by successive approximations. Calculations are carried through in detail for the first approximation. Higher order approximations can be evaluated by the same procedure. The analysis is in a form which leads itself to numerical evaluation on a digital computer. Author
