The analysis for the radiation pattern of an infinitesimal dipole mounted on the tip of a perfectly conducting, finite length cone is presented. The pattern is constructed from the superposition of a wave radiated directly from the linear element (in the presence of an infinite cone) and a wave diffracted from the edge of the cone. The method is verified by comparing computed values with experimental data.
