It is known that a uniform TEM plane wave propagating in an open space in a given direction is a solution of Maxwell's equations and that it consists of linearly polarized, mutually perpendicular electric and magnetic fields (l ]-(5]. However, these solutions are not immediately helpful in solving the case where the propagation direction of interest or observation differs from the original propagation direction for two reasons. Primarily, the solutions are for the TEM modes. Secondly, the longitudinal field components appear in the new direction of observation...
