After applying the approximations, the two components can be combined to give the total electric field The final result is

The resultant radiation pattern of the electric field is proportional to The unit pattern is proportional to the radiation pattern of the individual antennas, assumed to be identical. The group pattern is proportional to the radiation pattern the array would have with isotropic antennas . Note: on the x y plane, ψ coincides with the azimuthal angle ϕ . Following are examples of two antenna arrays with specific values of dipole distance and current phase difference .
