    Mini-project

    This mini-project assignement is composed of two parts:

    1. Plot of the antenna patterns.
    2. Use of CST to simulate monopole abobe ground plane.

    The due date for both part is 28/12/2017 and please deliver it to your TA.

    Descriptions of these parts are in the PDF documents.
