- The problem of computing the radiation pattern of an HF antenna sited in irregular terrain was investigated. The primary interest is in antennas for skywave communication, however ionospheric models were not considered. Several methods for modeling terrain effects are briefly reviewed. A geometrical optics model for arbitrary terrain is developed and results are compared with published results from solution of a Volterra integral equation for scattering by a Gaussian ridge. This report covers work on the first phase of a project for the US Navy to develop and apply models for terrain effects in HF communications involving skywave. 45 refs., 16 figs.
