A monopole antenna system loaded with a lumped inductor and a lumped capacitor is designed for use with dielectric submersible buoys. The antenna operates as an effective 58 wavelength monopole with a maximum of 3-dB gain relative to a 14 wavelength monopole at the horizon. The system is simple and allows the spherical buoy to maintain its watertight integrity. Author
