Abstract : A need exists for a mobile tranmitting antenna capable of radiating large amounts of power as efficiently as possible in the frequency range from 10 to 40 kc. Several mechanical and electrical problems are encountered in building and operating such antenna. First, the antenna must be physically long to have any appreciable electrical length. Impedance matching is another problem in the operation of such an electrically short antenna. A side-loaded transmission-line antenna is proposed as a possible solution. This antenna has certain characteristics that make it very desirable as a physically long, electrically short, mobile antenna. (Author)
