Abstract : A method for computing the patterns of monopole or aperture antennas mounted on a perfectly conducting convex surface radiating in the presence of a metal plate is presented. The Geometrical Theory of Diffraction (GTD) is used to analyze the radiating system. Systematic methods for computing the individual components of the total high-frequency field are discussed. The receiver location range from a wavelength away from any structure to the far-zone. The accuracy of the solutions is demonstrated by comparisons with measured results, where a 2 wavelength x 4 wavelength prolate spheroid is used as the convex surface.
