A technique, whereby the radiation patterns of large size reflector antennas can be approximated by computers using a moment method without excessive computer time or memory, is described. Computational time increases only linearly with antenna size. There is no limit on the minimum reflector size (a single wire reflector can be analyzed). An example is discussed showing the radiation patterns of a truncated parabolic reflector excited by feeds displaced from the parabola focus.
