A complete analysis of the radiation pattern of a center-fed axially symmetric loaded spherical reflector antenna is brought to a successful conclusion. The surface of the above-mentioned antenna is assumed to be loaded by materials whose effect is described in terms of surface impedances. The effect of this loading on the radiation pattern of a perfectly conducting spherical reflector is investigated. © 1988 IEEE
