"Image theory is used to develop the far field and polarization equations for a ninety degree corner reflector antenna. These equations are in terms of spherical coordinates, the length of the dipole element, the distance of the dipole from the corner of the reflector, and the angle of tilt of the dipole element with the apex of the corner. The equations are simplified to give the far fields in the vertical and horizontal planes for the special case of a half-wavelength dipole. An expression to calculate the distance of the dipole from the corner necessary to give circular polarization broadside to the antenna in terms of the tilt angle of the dipole is derived. This distance is plotted against the tilt angle. Plots are made of the far field in the vertical and horizontal planes for various values of distance and tilt angle, maintaining circular polarizations broadside"--Abstract, page ii.
