electrically small antenna, inductive load


Results of probing VSWR and efficiency factor electrically small antennas with the dimensions considerably smaller resonance with the matching inductive loads which have been included on directly in a radiating wire of the antenna are presented. The statistical estimation of sensitivity VSWR of antennas to fluctuations of parameters of a construction is executed.
