Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility by Clayton Paul refers to
Babinet's principle, which relates the far field radiation of a slot to
that of an antenna of the same dimensions. The rule of thumb I have
always seen si-list@silab.eng.sun.comis that anything longer than 1/10
wavelength is suspect.
