Abstract

The radiation field diffracted by a vertical, perfectly conducting rectangular plate on a perfectly conducting ground plane, when it is illuminated at any azimuthal angle by a vertical current element at ground level, is derived approximately in closed form. Experimental confirmation of this calculated field on a direct propagation path with different sizes of plate, aligned at different angles to the propagation path, is provided.
