#### MEINKE-impedance of vertical aerials l <= λ / 4

The result is also for dipols with double lenght, smaller then λ/2, if you double it. It has to be l>>d.

#### BALANIS-impedance for dipol

The result is for stretched width antennas in free space, medium or minimum 2 x λ over ground with sinusoidal current and l>>d. For the resonances frequency and wire diameter have to be specified. Lenghts are related to free space. The resonance-calculation delivers the lenght for free space. To get the geometric lenght in medium you have to watch lenght in medium. For experts I have transfered the 2kl in the auxilliary calculation. For arguments greater than 36 the calculation of Si(x) and Ci(x) is not exact. Continuing calculations [here].
