Could some electronics guru here please clarify this a bit. As a microstrip is a transmission line, can a half wavelength dipole antenna be modeled as two transmission lines, each of physical length wavelength/4, coupled capacitively? The free ends of each microstrip drive free space impedances(377 Ohm) each, whereas the other end of one is connected to the signal source, and the other microstrip has one end grounded. Any flaws in this reasoning ?
