Abstract:

Project 91260 High-Frequency HF Antenna Element Modeling is a MITRE sponsored research project to develop computer programs and accurate models for predicting the element pattern, radiation efficiency, and input impedance of HF monopole elements on ground planes of various forms that rest on or are in close proximity to earth. A unique aspect of this project has been the use of a technical advisor group composed of outside interested investigators to assist MITRE personnel in the development and evaluation of analytical models. As a member of this group, Dr. James R. Wait has assembled a collection of twenty-two reprints, authored by himself and his colleagues, on antenna performance influenced by the finite extent and conductivity of ground planes primarily in the presence of earth. The objective of this collection is to provide a focus and filter of relevant papers from among the more than 750 refereed papers by Wait and his associates this paper presents this collection. Also included are Dr. Waits discussions of U.S. Navy Electronics Laboratory reports related to reprint 1.11 Wait and Walters, 1963 and an annotated listing of selected related publication. A biography of Wait and a complete listing of his refereed papers through April 1990 are given in appendices.
