Abstract:

This Memorandum meets the need for practical advice on the design and assessment of the likely performance of the rhombic aerial. No new theoretical approach has been made but basic principles of the rhombic are explained and design charts of a new type are presented. These, compiled using two simple computer programs, offer a considerable time saving over design procedures used until now. Examples of aerials design used these charts are given together with polar diagrams of their theoretical performance. Keywords Aerials Radio antennas Antenna radiation patterns Great Britain.
