The problem of electromagnetic radiation from electric and magnetic line sources interacting with a moving magnetoplasma slab backed by a finitely conducting medium is treated. The local magnetostatic field is aligned parallel with the line source and is perpendicular to the direction of slab motion. For the configuration, theE andH modes are excited independently by a magnetic and an electric line source respectively. Expressions for the far zone radiation fields and the radiation pattern have been obtained for both the line sources. It is found that the radiation due to an electric line source is not affected by the presence of a static magnetic field and the motion of the slab medium. Numerical results for the radiation pattern referring to both the line sources have been presented for a wide range of parameters characterizing the finite magnetostatic field, the conductivity of the medium backing the plasma, the thickness of the slab and the location of the line source.
