Two identical antennas are placed in the $$\theta = \pi /2$$ plane as shown in figure. The elements have equal amplitude excitation with 180° polarity difference, operating at wavelength λ. The correct value of the magnitude of the far zone resultant electric field strength normalized with that of a single element, both computed for $$\phi = 0$$ is A
$$2\,\cos \left( {{{2\,\pi s} \over \lambda }} \right)$$
B
$$2\,\sin \left( {{{2\,\pi s} \over \lambda }} \right)$$
C
$$2\,\cos \left( {{{\pi s} \over \lambda }} \right)$$
D
$$2\,\sin \left( {{{\pi s} \over \lambda }} \right)$$
