Abstract : This report provides the necessary information to run a Fortran IV computer code which is used to analyze antenna patterns. The antenna is in the presence of various convex structures which can be simulated by finite flat plates. The code computer is theoretically based on the Geometrical Theory of Diffraction approach. Various examples are presented to illustrate the versatility of the code as well as its subtleties.
