This paper gives the results of a theoretical investigation of an antenna used with a plane reflector. This finds application in microwave relay stations, where the antenna is placed at ground level facing up and the reflector is located some distance above it. The results given show that there are certain values of X, separation distance, reflector and antenna size for which the received power is greater than for the same antenna alone at the elevated location.
