Abstract:

The report presents an analytical study of the horizontal pattern characteristics of the wave antenna at the first, second, and third optimum lengths. The reception patterns depend entirely upon the antenna loss and the wave velocity along the antenna. Curves are presented to show the heights and depths of the side lobes and nulls in the antenna patterns. These curves may be used to design wave antennas with prescribed side lobes and beamwidths.
