band at 1 MHZ. The dipole is made of copper wire with a radius of 1 mm.
(3) Determine the radiation efﬁciency of the antenna.
(b) What is the antenna gain in dB?
(c) What antenna current is required so that the antenna would radiate 80 W, and
how much power will the generator have to supply to the antenna? Solution: (a) Following Example 93, A : C/f : (3 X '108 m/s)/('106 Hz) : 300 m. As
UK : (2 m)/(300 m) : 6.7 X 10—3, this antenna is a short (Hertzian) dipole. Thus,

power. At a range of '1 km, what is the maximum power density radiated by the
antenna? Solution: From Eq. (9.23), D : 4TE/Qp, and from Eq. (9.24), D : 47ER25max/Pl3d.

the current Hz) as constant along the dipole, as was done in Section 91, a more realistic approximation that insures that the current goes to zero at the ends is to

radiation resistance Rmd. Solution:

the reduction is true for all directions. Hence, D remains unchanged at 1.5.
((1) Since SIR, 8) is 4 times smaller, the total radiated power Prad is 4times smaller. Consequently, Rmd : ZEN/15 is 4 times smaller than the expression given
by Eq. (9.35); that is, Rmd : 2031:2(1 m2 (o). Problem 9.18 Determine the effective area of a halfwave dipole antenna at
