In this paper, the coupling analysis of HF antennas mounted on a ship is presented. The method of Moments (MoM) is used to calculate the inter antenna coupling in 1.6-30 MHz frequency range. Numerical results with MoM are performed and the reliability of these methods is discussed according to the measurement results. The coupling measurements were acquired on 1:50 scale model of the shipboard.
