The problem of an antenna mounted on a conducting body is formulated by using a modification of the isolated thinwire kernel with the numerical Green's function for the body. This formulation is then employed for the investigation of the problem of a monopole antenna over a finite ground plane. The numerical Green's function for the plate is obtained by applying the finitedifference technique, which has previously been successfully applied to the thinwire junction problem. A useroriented Fortran program is developed, and extensive numerical results are reported.
