In this paper, the radiation pattern analysis of monopole antennas mounted on the aircraft is presented. The method of moments (MoM) is used to calculate the pattern in 30-400 MHz frequency range. Numerical results with MoM are performed and the reliability of these methods is discussed according to the measurement results. The pattern measurements were acquired on 1/10 scale model of the F-4 aircraft.
