The earlier geometrical theory of diffraction (GTD) approach to the H-plane horn radiation problem is reconsidered with spherical source excitation. Corner diffraction terms are included to provide a GTD model for the finiteness of the horn edges. A new heuristic corner slope diffraction (CSD) coefficient for a finite edge in a conducting plane is presented. The H-plane horn pattern, obtained with the addition of the corner diffraction and the new CSD terms to the earlier infinite edge GTD approach, is found to be in better agreement with measured results compared to earlier GTD formulations.
