Abstract : Varying the spacing between the transposed transmission line feeder and the radiating elements of the loop-coupled antenna is investigated experimentally using far-field swept-frequency techniques. An optimum spacing is found in the sense that anomalous frequency performance is minimized. A theory using dispersion relationships is developed and used to explain some of the experimental phenomena observed. (Author)
