Theory of characteristic modes is presented for structures with coexisting PEC and lossy dielectric parts. The developed method allows analysis of the radiation properties of the modes and their lossy mechanism. The usefulness of the method for practical antenna design tasks is demonstrated by investigating modes on a PEC plate (antenna ground plane) and an adjacent lossy dielectric structure (user's hand).
