The feasibility of a plasma antenna is given by plasma conductivity: this is the key parameter that has to be determined and optimized to characterize the radiation properties of such antennas. This paper presents a self-consistent model for the characterization of plasma state and some preliminary experimental results obtained with a plasma diagnostic technique developed to determine plasma conductivity.
