Abstract : A dielectric loaded edge-slot radiator whose exterior dimensions are adjustable to allow flush mounting on cylindrical and conical bodies which can be frequency tuned either electrically or mechanically. This is done by varying the number of inductive posts which are used as boundaries for the individual elements making up the antenna. A single inductive probe whose characteristic impedance is matched to the rf source is coupled so as to simultaneously excite all of the radiating elements in phase. The radiation field produced in a plane containing the radiator is nearly of constant amplitude. (Author)
