Abstract
A TRANSPORT VHF (25-30 KHZ) TRANSMIT SYSTEM ANTENNA WAS STUDIED. SEVERAL INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS WERE ANALYZED AND EVALUATED BOTH IN THE LABORATORY AND THE ANTENNA RANGE. ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE MODELED AT 2.5 TO 3 MHZ. THE TECHNIQUES INCLUDE: LOOP, MONOPOLE (INCLUDE SLOW WAVE VERSIONS), CENTER-FED VERTICAL MONOPOLE, AND GROUND/AIR INTERFACE DIPOLE. THE PROGRAM STRESSED ANTENNAS WHICH COULD OPERATE IN AREAS WHERE THE GROUND CONDUCTIVITY IS POOR.
