Abstract

In classical antenna books, the field radiated by a filamentary antenna is calculated integrating the electrical current induced over the wires as if it was a primary (impressed) source. This is no technically incorrect, but is not rigorous. In this paper some formal steps are added to the classical procedure to do it more rigorous.
