By using the reciprocity theorem, simple expressions are derived for the far-field patterns of normal and parallel dipoles in a plane dielectric slab. The dielectric slab may have a conducting ground plane on one surface. Numerical results are presented in a graphical form to show the effects of the dielectric on the antenna pattern. A dipole array embedded in a radome occupies less space than a conventional parabolic antenna, and the ground plane offers structural support for the radome.
