An analytical technique for predicting accurately the near (electric and magnetic) fields as well as the far fields of a reflector antenna with a pencil beam is presented. The technique proposed involves the near-field geometrical theory of diffraction (GTD) analysis of reflector antennas developed earlier and spherical vector mode functions. The proposed technique does not place any restriction on the range of polar angles or radial distances of the observation point. It is demonstrated that the technique proposed can predict the fields radiated by the reflector with greater accuracy by comparing the calculated results with the available measured results. A few important applications of the analysis proposed are also highlighted. © 1984 IEEE
