3 Scopus citations


In this communication the equations for the radiation of a line source above a lossy medium (earth) are presented. Numerous data on the variation of the field as a function of distance and direction from the source, operating frequency, and conductivity are included. Changes as a function of source position are also investigated. The results can be used in the design of mine rescue communication systems.
