A new source model for MoM analysis by using sinusoidal reaction matching technique is proposed for linear antenna analysis. This source model assumes a constant feeding gap and uniform electric field distribution inside the gap. The analysis results are compared with the results of the conventional models and measurement. It is found that the new model can incorporate the effect of the length of driving gap and is more accurate and more stable than that from the conventional source models. The proposed source model is simple and easy to use. This source model, together with the full kernel formulation, makes it possible to analyze the linear dipole antennas with no limitation of ratio of segment length to radius.
