Abstract:

A user-oriented computer program is presented and described for analyzing the near fields of thin wire antennas. The program is based on the method of moments and is an extension of a program presented earlier for computing far-field and current distributions. In general the wires of a given configuration can be arbitrarily bent and can be excited or loaded at arbitrary points along their lengths. It is also possible to include wire junctions enabling treatment of special configuretions such as wire crossed and supporting wires for long antennas. The subsectional approach used provides accurate results as close as one subsection length from the nearest wire surface. Author
