Summary: 
A theoretical and experimental study of a thin card-sized antenna is presented. The method of moment with a wire-grid model is used to analyze this antenna. In order to validate numerical efficiency, measurements using Wheeler method are preformed on this antenna and its wire-grid models. The experimental and theoretical results are in good agreement if the wire conductivity is well chosen. And the noise reduction of measured Wheeler efficiency using least mean square method is also examined.
