With I 2 set to zero, we recognize Z 1 above as the input impedance of ant.1, while Z 21 is a coupling impedance connecting the open circuit response voltage of ant.2 to the driver current of ant.1. Likewise, Z 2 is the input impedance of ant.2 and Z 12 is a coupling impedance from ant.2 to ant.1. The reciprocal behaviour of a pair of antennas separated in free space restricts the coupling impedances in the model circuit to satisfy Z 21 V 2 I 1  I 2 =0 = Z 12 V 1 I 2  I 1 =0 Z c so that transmission gain P t /P r is independent of the transmission and reception roles assigned to the antennas (as verified below). 1 With that restriction the equivalent circuit model of the coupling sim plifies as (see margin) Reciprocal circuit model for antenna coupling: + + V 1 V 2 I 1 I 2 Z c Z...
