Abstract : IN TWO CASES OF A LINEAR ANTENNA DRIVEN FROM A COAXIAL LINE, IT IS SHOWN THAT THE APPARENT TERMINAL ADMITTANCE TO THE COAXIAL LINE CAN BE ADDITIVELY SEPARATED INTO TWO PARTS WHEN THE TRANSVERSE DIMENSIONS ARE SMALL COMPARED WITH THE WAVELENGTH. One of these two parts depends only on the wavelength and the dimensions of the antenna, while the other part can be interpreted as a capacitance that depends only on the radii of the coaxial line. his capacitance may be found exactly from the solution of an integral equation, in the sense that further corrections cannot be interpreted simply as a capacitance.
