Yes, transmitted power is proportional to voltage squared (antenna
input impedance is constant with input power variation).
The electric and magnetic fields are proportional to voltage and

Suppose that I want to transmit an unmodulated carrier. Assuming
that the antenna has a fixed impedance at the carrier frequency, so
that the current is proportional to the voltage, am I correct in
thinking that the voltage of the signal at the feed point of the
antenna should be sin(ωt), and that the transmitted power is
Are the magnitudes of the E- and B-fields proportional to the voltage
(and current), or to the power?
