Measurements are described of the driving-point admittance and the amplitude and phase distributions of the current for a half-wave dipole antenna immersed in a stratified medium for various gradients S of the ratio \sigma /\omega \epsilon_{r}-\epsilon_{0} = b+sx , where the origin of the coordinates is at the driving point of the dipole antenna and the x axis is along the antenna. The study includes a description of the apparatus, a discussion of the effect of the nylon films separating the layers, and an interpretation of the data. Reference is made to the possible application of a half-wave dipole antenna to the detection of an inhomogeneity in a medium.
