N2 - When one uses integral equations to determine the input admittance of dipole antennas, one must choose between two kernels, the exact and the approximate kernel, and also between (at least) two types of feed, the delta-function generator and the frill generator. For dipole antennas of infinite length, we investigate-analytically and numerically-the similarities and differences between the various admittance values. Particular emphasis is placed on the fact, discussed in detail in recent publications, that certain combinations lead to nonsolvable integral equations.
