The present work considers a small island close to an unfriendly shore. It is studied if and how the occupation of this land mass and the radiation through it could offer to one's own country an increased capability to interfere with the opponent's submarine communications. The simplified electromagnetic model is treated by utilizing the quasi-analytic scattering integral technique, while the derived solution has been tried, tested, and verified. The produced results show that the negative effect of the radiating island on communication between the vehicles of the rival country is substantial in most cases. This applicable conclusion is mainly attributed to the vastly larger sea losses compared to the fading of the propagating wave through land.
