Abstract : The report covers pattern and impedance measurements on typical HF field-expedient antennas--slant wires, inverted L's and dipoles--installed over open farmland in California. Radiation patterns were measured with an aircraft-towed transmitter at elevation angles between 3 and 60 degrees in two polarizations. Several frequencies between 2 and 15 Mc/s were measured on each antenna. Input impedances are given for each antenna over this same frequency range. (Author)
