Foreword

The techniques used to design the AM passive RF networks that are required to yield maximum power transfer over a maximally flat channel bandwidth between the transmitter and the antenna have matured to a more refined degree as a result of the widespread adoption of Method of Moments (MOM) modeling for towers and their feed configurations, the development of state-of-the-art network topology computer software tools, such as SPICE,1 and the adoption of the MOM methodology using Numerical Electromagnetics Code (NEC),2 Mini-NEC and other similar computer programs for ...
