This paper presents an efficient method for solving a large body scattering problem, viz., a paraboloidal reflector antenna system with only partial circular symmetry. The asymmetry in the system is introduced by two factors, viz., the microstrip feed and an inhomogeneous radome. The paper presents a novel approach, based on the reciprocity principle and the “equivalent aperture” theory, to handle the asymmetry problem and still take advantage of the circular symmetry of the large paraboloid of revolution to render the problem manageable
