The use of new plasma technologies in antenna technology is widely discussed nowadays. The plasma antenna must receive and transmit signals in the frequency range of a transceiver. Many experiments have been carried out with plasma antennas to transmit and receive signals. Due to lack of experimental data and because experiments are difficult to carry out, there is a need for computer (numerical) modeling to calculate the parameters and characteristics of antennas, and to verify the parameters for future studies. Our study has modeled plasma vibrator (dipole) antennas (PDA) and metal vibrator (dipole) antennas (MDA), and has calculated the characteristics of PDAs and MDAs in the full KARAT electro-code. The correctness of the modeling has been tested by calculating a metal antenna using the MMANA program.
