Abstract : Equations are given for calculating antenna distortion and restoration in one and two dimensions. Apparent and restored temperature distributions are computed and plotted for various temperature distributions consisting principally of pedestal-type sources with superimposed disturbances of small amplitude. Results show that restoration is only of moderate effectiveness even for ideal conditions, when the antenna pattern function is known exactly. (Author)
