Abstract : The objective of the analytical study was to develop a rapid theoretical analysis on approximate half wavelength elements of an antenna configured in a co-planar, symmetrical array. A computer program was written employing the method of moments approach to the solution of Hallen's integral equation with an approximate two term entire domain expansion assumed for the current distributions. With the solution of the current distributions on each element, additional calculations were made for the input impedance and admittance values, field distributions, power gain, and a graphical output of the radiation pattern.
