As a solver in a simulator, advantages of use of a wavelet function were investigated for analysis of a dipole antenna using the Moment Method. Realization of a sparse matrix due to orthogonality and due to inherent nature of the wavelet is confirmed by observing an impedance matrix using each Daubechies' wavelet. Calculated results of the input impedance, the impedance matrix, and the current distribution are compared in variation of the wavelet in two integral equations for a dipole antenna. Use of the Daubechies' wavelet of the high number with a small matrix and a threshold in the Hallen's Integral Equation is suitable for the reduction of the matrix size and of the calculation cost.
