Main intension is to calculate admittance and radiation pattern of longitudinal shunt slot in rectangular waveguide using Method of Moments (MoM) technique. Resonant length calculation of the slot is a critical parameter in the design of waveguide slot array antenna. All computed results are compared with simulated results. CST Microwave studio is used for the simulation and is totally based on FIT techniques. For computation purpose MATLAB 7.0 is used. The numerical data on transmission and reflection coefficient are evaluated. Method of moment solution is used to calculate resonant length versus slot offset for given waveguide dimension and frequency. E and H field radiation pattern are calculated for different offset in different frequencies.
