Abstract. On the basis of the Kirchhoff integral and the Oliner approximation the asymptotic formulas for a radiated field and a radiated pattern of a microstrip horn are received. The amplitude patterns and phase patterns of microstrip horns with various angles have been calculated with the use of the received formula. The results are compared with the ones obtained with the use of finite element method and numerical calculation of the Kirchhoff integral.

Key words: microstrip horn, Kirchhoff integral, Oliner approximation, asymptotic formulas.
