Abstract : Measurements were made on a horizontal conductor near the earth with periodic series capacitance inserted to control the wave velocity along the antenna. Increases in radiation efficiency as great as 15-fold were observed. The correlation between theoretical and experimental antenna efficiency was fair. (Author)
