The method of moments is used to study the shielding effectiveness of a pigtail-terminated shielded wire (coaxial line) above a perfectly conducting ground plane. Numerical computations are performed in the RF frequency range, i.e., 25-1000 MHz. Pigtail wires on either or both ends of the shield are considered. Results are compared to those from the ungrounded case (floating shield). Results show that the presence of pigtail wires as ground connections at RF frequencies is undesirable and may further enhance radiation. The impedance terminations have a small effect on the shielding effectiveness of the antenna structure.
