A scaled model of an idealized superstructure was used to support an electrically thin radiating monopole antenna. The surface charge and current distributions on the antenna were measured, and with the resulting data, the antennas apparent admittance was calculated. The procedures for measurements of surface distributions on antennas were then modified to permit similar measurements on flat metallic surfaces, and with the modified techniques the surface charge and current distributions were obtained for vertical sides of the model superstructure. The results of the measurements provide benchmark data for use in connection with the application of numerical techniques for the analysis of geometrical configurations similar to the model used in the experiment.
