The Gap is really a vertically oriented dipole though it reduces in size by percentage as frequency is lowered it works pretty good but does not require radials for the return path because it is a two pole ac circuit.

The feed point impedance is pretty good for coupling to the antenna feed line though the Rr of any vertically radiating system is intrinsic upon the earth ground conductivity about the near field for which the feed point impedance is driven by power input.

Good Rr value along with a matched system radiates well.
