Radome (of Antennas)

The radome of the antenna is a protection of the radiating elements. The influence of the radome on the radiation of the antenna is included in the pattern of the antenna – but in MASC the influence (mainly shielding) of the radome on other antennas mounted at the same mast is considered.

The cross-section of radomes are either circular cylinders (for omnidirectional antennas) or rectangular (for sector antennas). Of course, you can select the cross section of the radomes individually for each antenna.
