Back projection techniques have been used extensively in planar near-field ranges and to a lesser degree in spherical near-field ranges. Recently a back projection technique allowing back projection from spherical near-field data onto a planar surface has been published and implemented. This paper explores this technique further through the presentation of measured data for a large microstrip array antenna. The results demonstrate how the technique can be used to investigate anomalies in the feed structure of the array.
