Electronics

  • A wideband antenna similar to a biconical antenna, except that one of the cones is replaced by a flat circular disk which is usually parallel to the surface of the earth. The center conductor of a coaxial line terminates at the center of the disk, while the outer conductor of the line terminates at the vertex of the cone.
