The problem of a vertical monopole situated over a circular perfectly conducting screen lying on a finitely conducting ground is considered. An approximate method employed originally by Abbott to calculate the self‐impedance is discussed. Using this formula explicit expressions are derived for the self‐impedance of a thin, top‐loaded vertical monopole. Sinusoidal current distribution is assumed.
