It has been demonstrated that the ribs of the CW-396A radome have a negligible effect on the L-band elevation plane radiation pattern and consequently on the altitude error curves for the air-search radar discussed in Part 2 of this report RADC-TR-215. In particular, the radome produces grating lobes that are approximately 30 dB below the main beam level.
