Based on the image theory of a bianisotropic object and the cylindrical vector wave functions in conjunction with their addition theorem, a convenient and effective technique is developed to study electromagnetic scattering by a reciprocal uniaxial bianisotropic circular cylinder in the proximity of a perfect electric conductor plane. Numerical results of the bistatic and the backward echo widths for TM<sub>z</sub> and TE<sub>z</sub> incident plane waves, respectively, are presented. As a result of the linear magnetoelectric interaction effects of the reciprocal uniaxial bianisotropic medium, polarization transformation of the scattered wave occurs.
