Abstract : Broadband impedance matching of externally complementarized endfire monopole pairs is described, where the radiating elements consist of thin wires. Broadband impedance loci are achieved for the thin radiators by impedance inverters placed prior to the complementarizing circuit. Impedance matching is then accomplished in a standard broadband hybrid or 'Magic Tee'.
