The scattered radiation patterns of spheroidal voids irradiated by longitudinal waves were analyzed in the regime in which the wavelengths are large with respect to the scattering obstacle. The data were acquired using a simple analog device. Agreement between experiment and theory is good, and shows that the shape and size of defects can be estimated using long wavelengths.
