This paper discusses the fully three-dimensional finite difference time domain (FDTD) method to analyze a monopole antenna mounted on a rectangular conducting box covered with a layer of dielectric. The effects of the conductivity and the permittivity of the dielectric layer are investigated. It is shown that all calculation results agree very well with the measured data.
