Abstract:

The vertically polarized antenna has VSWR of 3 to 1 or better throughout band, and provides omnidirectional coverage in horizontal plane. Low-angle radiation is provided by the cage section at most frequencies from 2 to 8 Mcs. Vertical patterns -- with a major lobe at relatively low angles -- are provided by the discone section from 8 to 30 Mcs and higher. Auxiliary networks insure stability of impedance and pattern characteristics.
