Application of the impedance line method to radiators with concentrated loads permits to create antennas with required characteristics, in particular, the wideband monopole, an antenna with the given current distribution, etc. Wideband radiators must have an exponential or linear in-phase current distribution, created by capacitive loads that vary, in particular, along the radiator length in accordance with linear law. In order to retain in-phase current distribution in a wider frequency range, the capacitances of these loads should vary in inverse proportion to the squared frequency. Using of capacitive loads in V-dipoles yields similar results.
