Abstract : Program WAMP is a Wire Antenna Modeling Program written in FORTRAN IV and applicable to arbitrary antenna and support structures. WAMP models an antenna as a series of interconnected straight wire segments, and solves the electromagnetic boundary value problems by numerically evaluating an electric field integral equation. Antennas may be analyzed in free space, over a perfect ground, a radial ground screen or in the presence of any homogeneous media. Antenna input impedance, current distributions, near-electric fields and far- field radiation patterns are also calculated. The users manual covers both the theory and numerical techniques employed in WAMP. The program's input variables are defined, and illustrative examples are used to demonstrate the program's capabilities.
