Abstract : An investigation was made to find general properties of sets of uniform, isotropic radiation sources in regard to directivity with the intention of simplifying the calculation of the directivity of such sets and finding rules for the construction of optimal configurations in regard to directivity. The general solution that forms the base of the investigation is specialized for the cases where all dipoles lie in a plane and where all lie on a straight line. (Author)
