The purpose of this analytical study was to develop useful computer models, using the Numerical Electromagnetic Code, for the VHF omnidirectional tactical antennas in the current inventory of the U.S. Marine Corps. The approach was to develop two basic models, one representing the RC-292 ground plane antenna, the other the MRC-109 vehicle mounted antenna system. with the solution of the current distributions on each of the models, calculations were made to analyze the impedance, gain and the associated radiation patterns for each of the antennas over dissipative earth was also investigated.
