Analysis of the small tuned folded dipole input impedance gives a limiting bandwidth proportional to frequency and antenna dimension. A simple antenna mode expansion also directly contradicts the Chu-Wheeler Q criterion. A line-integral potential method gives an additional logarithmic Q reduction factor. Untuned field sensors may have additional coupling losses.
