This paper presents a study of some properties of a tunnel-diode-loaded-dipole antenna. These include gain, noise performance, stability, and reradiation characteristics. In essence the analysis is made by applying ordinary network theory to an equivalent network of the loaded dipole antenna; however, the treatment stresses the difference between the combined antenna and amplifier (antennafier) and the usual amplifier. Graphical determinations of stability and reradiation are shown.
