Abstract : A method of solving antenna radiation pattern, gain and radiation resistance problems is discussed. This method extends the techniques used on some planar radar arrays to antennas or arrays having arbitrary and possibly irregular shape. The first section discusses the fundamental principles of antennas and develops the equations to useable form for taking into account aspect, retardation, and electrical phase. It applies them to antenna gain and radiation resistance evaluation. The second section demonstrates applications to the following antennas: dipole, 30 degree Fishhook Antenna, Crossed Fishhook Antenna, unipole antenna, and helix antenna. In addition, use of the method to aid improvement of properties of a radiator is indicated. (Author)
