The radiation fields of a line source enclosed in a circular dielectric radome with grating consisting of an array of thin lossy metal strips are analyzed. The variations of the directivity of the source beam with respect to the beam direction are studied. The possibility of damping these variations by an appropriate design of the radome is demonstrated.
