Summary: 
Authors had proposed a hybrid electromagnetic field analysis method suitable for an airport surface so far. In this paper, the hybrid method is validated by measurements by using a 1/50 scale-model of an airport considering several layouts of the buildings and sloping ground. The measured power distributions agreed with the analyzed ones within 5 dB errors excepting null points and the null positions of the distribution is also estimated within one wavelength errors.
