A method is developed for measuring the angular distribution of radiation in the near zone that excludes the contribution of the sizes of a radiation source to angular characteristics. Using this method, absolute measurements of the angular distribution of coherent transition radiation are performed in the millimeter wavelength range. It is shown that the measured characteristics correspond to the respective theoretical characteristics obtained in the far zone approximation.
