Below is a MatLab code that computes an antenna pattern, normalizes the results to the peak, and plots the results as a function of theta:

kh=(2*pi);
theta(1)=0;
for i=1:1000
r(i)=sin(theta(i))*2*cos(kh*cos(theta(i)));
if(i<1000)
theta(i+1)=theta(i)+pi/1000;
end
end

dB=20*log(r/max(r));
plot(theta,dB)
axis([0 pi -70 0])
title('Plot of Radiation Pattern for l=10\lambda (the increase in # of lobes is significant)')
xlabel('\theta')
ylabel('dB')
