This example shows how to model an infinite ground plane and calculate fundamental antenna parameters for balanced antennas.
Create a reflector antenna on a ground plane of infinite length.
r = reflector ('GroundPlaneLength', inf)
r = reflector with properties: Exciter: [1x1 dipole] Substrate: [1x1 dielectric] GroundPlaneLength: Inf GroundPlaneWidth: 0.2000 Spacing: 0.0750 EnableProbeFeed: 0 Conductor: [1x1 metal] Tilt: 0 TiltAxis: [1 0 0] Load: [1x1 lumpedElement]
