"Scope of the Investigation: The small volume sandwich antenna was patterned after that of F. D. Clapp's which appears in an unpublished report written for the United States Navy. Clapp's antenna is shown in Figure 2. The antenna described in this report was investigated at approximately one-thousandth of the volume of the original Clapp antenna. Clapp's antenna was designed for the 225-400 megacycle range; while the author's model was designed for operation at 400 megacycles.
The objective of this investigation was to build a small volume sandwich antenna which could be adapted to satisfy the characteristics listed on page 1. Since there was no information available in literature on the sandwich antenna at very small volumes, the experimental work described in this report was directed toward determining the antenna's characteristics at these very small volumes. In essence the experimental work described here was a feasibility study of the small volume sandwich antenna"--Introduction, page 5.
