Abstract:

This report investigates the performance of a Compensated Waveguide Antenna at Logan International Airport Runway 4R. The Waveguide Antenna will maintain Category 2 performance with the threshold moved 1300 feet in front of its present location. The effect of the truncation of ground at the water edge is shown to be insignificant and the effect of a ship in the channel will not violate Category 2 requirements if 9dB of coning is used.
