Half-Loop Antennas

 

impedances at various frequencies on the Smith charts, with computed values (in full line) and measured values (in doted lines). These charts underscore the performances of a resonating cavity like a R, L, C parallel device, and confirm the impedance values computed by the method of moments.

The calculated and measured values are compared at various frequencies (FIG 6, FIG7) The bandwidth is measured at VSWR ý 2.5:1 , when the real and the imaginary terms of the impedance are equal.

The results have validated the antenna equivalent circuit.

This sheme helped to optimize the dimensions of the radiating element, considering the efficiency and bandwidth requirements. The approximative values are, from 2 to 12 MHz:

Rr = 0,5m to 3 with a 2,2m2 antenna surface

Rp= 0.01 to 0.02

C= 3500 to 60 pF

Rc= 0.05 to 2
