Abstract : A monopole inductively loaded antenna system is disclosed in which the antenna system is tuned to resonance and impedance matched without making changes to the loading inductance or other antenna elements. The monopole inductively loaded antenna is supported by a base insulator having an antenna side and ground plane side. a variable capacitor is positioned on the ground plane side of the base feed insulator for tuning the antenna system to resonance. One of a plurality of impedance matching transformers is selectively switched into the antenna system to match the antenna load to the transmitter. (Author)
