The paper adopts an inverse problem approach to examine the role of some 2D geometries in the source reconstruction from far zone data. It aims at evaluating the number of independent pieces of information, i.e. the number of degrees of freedom (NDF), of the source and pointing out the set of far zone fields corresponding to stable solutions of the inverse problem. Some of the results are relevant to the synthesis problem of conformal antennas, since a general comparison of different source geometries in providing radiation pattern specifications is proposed.
