When you charge a metal object to a million volts,
will it radiate?

** You are so far off the basic issue.
An antenna radiates RF energy in proportion to the VOLTAGE on its driven
elements.
A series inductor operating at resonance with some capacitance *magnifies*
the voltage appearing at the output of the driving amplifier.
Soooo - it boosts the energy radiation if the antenna is capacitive.
Which all short antennas are !!!!!!!!!!!
Fuck equal value impedance matching nonsense.

It is interesting, but I'm looking for a (possibly simple) mathematical formulation that
- applies to a generic dipole of arbitrary length (not lambda /2 or lambda/4, and in general way smaller than the wavelength),
- does not take in integrals nor starts from Maxwell's equations
- possibly takes in all conventional approximations/simplifications for far field, isotropic, linear, homogeneous, non-dispersive medium,
- binds the antenna complex impedance to the length and lambda
The closest to this was Fred's answer but the source is not exactly an "handbook".
I'm now starting from scratch to understand the current and voltages distribution across the dipole to understand how the ratio between them is defined and therefore the impedance.

** It might be there match your stupid ass.

Least of all him.

** Hmmm, is there a tiny flicker of insight ..........
It might just dawn on this fucking idiot that "match" has
more than its literal meaning.
Like in the old joke:
" Got a match ? "
" Yeah - your face and my ass. "
