Abstract: This report contains a consolidation of practical engineering equations for linear communication antennas suitable for use in the prediction and analysis of the system performance of high frequency communication equipment. The theoretical background and the nature of the approximations are discussed. Complete equations are provided. Examples of the computations are given for each type of antenna.
