This report presents an analytical solution for the radiation field of an axially slotted, infinite, circular cylinder which is covered with a uniform layer of an anisotropic plasma sheath. Numerical results are obtained and radiation patterns plotted for various degrees of plasma anisotropy. It is shown that the radiation pattern undergoes rapid changes for certain ranges of plasma parameters and forms well-defined, directive beams for other ranges. Curves showing the effect of the thickness of the plasma sheath on the radiation characteristics are also given. Author
