HF analysis of a horizontal dipole antenna buried in lossy ground has been performed in this paper. The soil is treated as a homogenous half-space of known electrical parameters. The authors compare the range of applicability of two forms of transmission line model, a hybrid circuit method, and a point-matching method in such analysis.
