Abstract

Two-port model of an antenna for use in characterizing wireless communications systems was presented. A network analyzer and a Wheeler cap were sufficient for accurately measuring total antenna efficiency versus frequency for a small, solitary antenna. It was found that the total efficiency was the transfer function of the antenna.
