The pattern of the scattered field in the far zone, in principle, can be determined by applying a Fourier transform to the asymptotic representations for the current. However, this chapter shows one should not do this since the expressions obtained using this approach do not satisfy the reciprocity theorem. Because of this, an asymptotic relationship was sought for the field in the far zone, proceeding from the exact solutions and functional equations derived from the previous chapter.
