This paper considers the idealized problem of the transmission from a perfect vertical antenna over perfectly conducting plane earth. The distribution of current amplitude along the antenna is assumed to be sinusoidal. The antenna resistance is entirely radiational and has been calculated in a companion paper. The amount of energy radiated in various altitudinal directions is calculated, and distribution diagrams are given illustrating special cases. The conditions for the greatest economy of… Expand
Antenna Designer's Notebook-asymmetric vertical dipole antennas for MF AM transmitting
An asymmetric vertical dipole is proposed as a surface wave transmitting antenna for low-, medium-, and high-frequency applications, where a strong vertically polarized wave is needed. This kind ofExpand
Height radius effect on MF AM transmitting monopole antenna
Critical study of the height-radius (H/a) relationship effect is made in order to determine the performance of the transmitting monopole antenna and the results are of interest, since they permit evaluation of the best H/a relationship for a determined antenna height. Expand
MF AM asymmetric vertical-dipole-antenna measurements
A medium-frequency AM transmitting vertical dipole for a 50 kW broadcast station was constructed, during May and June, 1994, at Buenos Aires, Argentina. This kind of vertical dipole operates withoutExpand
An Antenna for Controlling the Nonfading Range of Broadcasting Stations
A new type of broadcast antenna is described which radiates very little energy over a wide, high angle. The angle above which minimum energy is radiated can be varied electrically from 40° to 60°,Expand
The Broadcast Antenna
During the past several years, the trend in broadcast transmitting antennas has been towards the vertical radiator. The performance of these newer antennas has been subject to considerableExpand
MF AM transmitting asymmetric vertical dipole
An asymmetric vertical dipole is proposed as an MF AM-broadcast station transmitting antenna. This kind of vertical dipole antenna uses the supporting guys as part of the radiating structureExpand
General Considerations of Tower Antennnas for Broadcast Use
The factors influencing the action of towers when used as radiators are considered. It is shown that the results predicted from the simple theory of sinusoidal distribution of current on the towerExpand
Antennas for Medium-Frequency Broadcasting
The design of medium-frequency broadcast antennas for optimized performance has also seen tremendous advances with the introduction of numerical solutions to electromagnetic problems and nodal modeling of feeder systems made economically possible with personal computers vastly simplifying both design and implementation.

A Computer Calculation of the Far Field Radiation Pattern of an Antenna Array
A computer program has been investigated and developed for the calculation of the far field radiation pattern of an antenna array. This paper contains an IBM 360/65 program for the calculation of theExpand
Slanted Wire Fed Grounded Monopole Characteristics
To show the vertical radiation characteristics of the antenna height versus the antenna radius, as it is modified by the slanted wire, the actual antenna characteristic is determined using the moment method software code. Expand
