The integral equations for the current in isolated and coupled strip antennas are derived and related to the corresponding equations for the circular tubular antenna. The integral equations for the two-element array and the N-element circular array of strip antennas are formulated. The equations are solved specifically for the closely spaced two-strip array and the properties of the two-strip transmission line are obtained. It is noted that mutual coupling can be evaluated more accurately among strips than among tubular cylinders.
