Abstract : The patent describes an antenna comprising a conductive of ground surface element and at least one conductive radiator element in the form of an extended two dimensional sheet. The conductive radiator element is mounted parallel to the ground surface element and no more than one-fifteenth of an operating free-space wavelength from it. Signals are fed to at least two points on the radiator element wherein the signals at the points excite the radiator element symmetrically to cause current to flow across the outer surface of the conductive radiator element in the lowest mode of excitation.
