### Abstract

A simplified analysis which gives insight into and physical interpretation on the radiation mechanism of an array of line sources above a finite ground plane is presented. Computations have been restricted to an array of two line source since data are available for comparison. Results on the variation of the maximum field intensity, the angle of maximum field intensity, the angle of maximum field intensity, and the field i#tensity, and the field intensity at the axis of the counterpoise as functions of the size of the ground plane are presented. Variations of the maximum field intensity and the angle of maximum field intensity asthe angle of maximum field intensity as functions of the distance of the source above the ground plane are also illustrated. These data become very important in the design of antennas for aircraft navigation taking into account the presence of the finite counterpoise which otherwise could lead to erroneous designs.
