Abstract : The self and mutual admittances of an array of two long dipole antennas were obtained in terms of known functions by an approximate in method based on the Weiner-Hopf technique. The results are valid when ka<< 1 and kb to the 2nd power/h> 1, where k is the wave number and a, b, and 2h are, respectively, the radius, separation, and height of the antennas. The current distribution along the antennas has also been obtained and several graphs of numerical results have been presented and discussed. To illustrate the application of these results, they have been used to calculate the transient coupling between the elements of the array in some simple cases. The report also includes a brief description of the effective terminal impedance of a widely separated, open-circuited two-wire line supporting the TEM mode. (Author)
