Abstract: A solution is obtained for the problem of the propagation of electromagnetic waves in a semi-infinite flanged coaxial line with an infinite center conductor, in terms of an infinite set of coefficients which are determined by an infinite set of linear equations. The solution is discussed, in detail, in limiting cases which illustrate properties both of a thin vertical antenna on a plane perfectly conducting earth, and of a thick antenna fed by a low impedance line. Numerical results are given in these cases. The possibility of a solution for any excitation frequency is also discussed.
