This study develops a methodology for calculating the fields of a biconical antenna with resistive loading that appears to be computationally feasible. The resistively loaded case is found to require additional terms in the antenna region compared to the lossless case, so that the interior boundary condition is satisfied. The solution of the interior boundary value equations requires the use of an orthogonal basis of functions in the radial direction, which reduces the problems to one that can be solved in matrix form. The computational implementation of this theory remains to be executed.
