Abstract : The bistatic cross section of resonant half-wave and full-wave resonant dipoles is considered. The cross section is calculated for various combinations of polarization of transmitting and receiving antennas both linear and circular. The calculation is accomplished by a Monte Carlo method which is estimated to be accurate within several percent. The calculated values for backscattering are seen to agree with certain results in the literature. (Author)
