The method of moments (MoM) is used to analyze the disk loaded monopole (DLM) antenna. Results were validated by comparison with mode-matching and wire-model methods as well as with measurements covering a wide range of electrical sizes. A quasistatic treatment is shown to be both rapid and accurate for the electrically small case. Equivalent circuits are obtained for predicting communication system performance. Parameters defining the fundamental limitations of electrically small antennas are extracted and shown to be accurate for system analysis and useful as design tools.
