	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.
