In this paper, the analysis of mutual coupling between monopole antennas mounted on the aircraft at UHF band is presented. The Method of Moments (MoM) and hybridized MoM with Uniform Geometrical Theory of Diffraction (UTD) method (MoM/UTD) are used to calculate the coupling in 225-400 MHz frequency range. Numerical results with MoM and MoM/UTD are performed and the reliability of these methods is discussed based on the measurement results. © 2006 IEEE.
