Hi,
I have some problems to understand how to calculate the far field when a scattering object stands between a transmission und receiving antenna (Tx-Obj-Rx are in line). In my case the object is a windturbine with lets say a hight of D=100m. The frequency of my transmission system is f=90MHz (lampda=3.33m).

I know how to calculate the far field distance from the transmitter to my object (2D^2/lampda), but i don't understand how to calculate it from the object to the receiver.

Do I need to calculate it the same way, as if the object wasn't there, so I use the size of the receiving antenna instead of the dimension of my object?

Why do I need this? I have to know if the reciever is in the near or far field of my wind turbine not of the transmitter.

I hope you can help me.

Thank you.

Depending on how accurately you construct the physical model of this situation, NEC (Numerical Electromagnetics Code) can produce good insight toward answering your questions.

In general, VHF/UHF signals tend to diffract around many narrow-profile physical structures with little practical effect on the far fields beyond those structures.

Consider the cases of the VHF/UHF broadcast antenna systems mounted on vertical pylons installed on a "candelabra" support structure, such as at Mt Sutro, CA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sutro_Tower).
