Abstract : The edge mounted TEM-line antenna is a lightweight, low profile, medium-gain UHF-VHF traveling wave antenna. The antenna is capable of operating in several different modes in a given frequency band. In its simplest form the antenna consists of a small diameter semi-rigid coaxial transmission line bonded to the edge of a conducting ground plane. Sections of the coax outer conductor are removed at periodic intervals to form the radiating elements. The paper presents methods of measuring calculating the characteristic impedance and discontinuity capacitance of a single edge mounted radiating element. (Author Modified Abstract)
