This antenna is also referred to as a conical coaxial dipole, an asymmetric vertical dipole, a ground-plane type antenna with drooping radials or sometimes loosely as a vertical antenna.

Advantages of this type of antenna over a conventional monopole on a ground plane include the fact that it can be raised well above nearby obstructions such as buildings and power lines, and that the drooping radials can be used as guy wires to support the mast.
