Experimental results on the input impedances and the current distributions of cylindrical antennas of various lengths in a large volume of hot lossy plasma are presented. A relatively simple theory based on an integral equation and a grid antenna model is developed. The theoretical results are in good qualitative agreement with the experiments. The theory is also compared to theories of some other researchers. Because of its simplicity, the present theory may prove useful in practical applications.
