A radiating structure based on a slot line has been investigated using a decomposition method in combination with the concept of induced electromotive forces. The influence of the size of a screen on the distribution of surface currents has been analyzed. Co- and cross-polarized radiation patterns of a slot rhombic antenna have been computed. It has been found that the slot rhombic antenna has broadside radiation in the 1.85-2.8 GHz frequency band. The radiation pattern and voltage standing-wave ratio (VSWR) of the constructed slot rhombic antenna have been measured.
