A method is described for measuring the amplitude distribution of high frequency current along some simple types of antennas. Measured curves for some cases are given and compared with some frequently assumed curves. Some of the measured distributions were integrated numerically to determine the driving point resistances. The driving point resistances were measured for geometrically similar antennas in some cases. Deviations from usually assumed curves are significant, but do not bring about large errors in the calculated resistances.
