The metamaterial slab with low refractive index exhibits directive properties which make it suitable to work as antenna. The characteristics of such a device are affected under the presence of a conducting rod of arbitrary shape placed over the slab. A qualitative and quantitative approach is presented which is possible by implementing the method of auxiliary sources. For the evaluation of the far field quantities the method of stationary phase is employed. A validation example considering a circular rod is solved rigorously with use of the method of moments. Several numerical results are shown and discussed.
