This has been covered in standard antenna texts
for decades. There has been some discussion
here of what needs study. Perhaps applying
existing knowledge from other areas of electrical
engineering would save time, effort and speed
This is NOT to say that all comments from existing
engineering/engineers can be, or should be, taken
as 'the rule', however thoughtful examination
of the details (as opposed to oversimplified
versions) will commonly be productive.
