It's not easy to understand what you want say.
Is the Shielded structure a waveguide, or a mirror or what?
generally speaking the roughness play a role smaller that many people thinks.
For a Waveguide the roughness increase lhe loss (not so mutch as you change the metal from Ag to Al). For a mirror a gaussian distributed roughness generate an ef

According to the equation of Ids=1/2K'W/L(Vgs-Vt) (in saturation), the Ids should increase with the ration of W/L. When I use Pspice to do the simulation, I can't observe the increase in Ids in the saturation region. I am using Level 1 model, and the parameter is :
VTO=1.4 KP=0.05e-3 lambda=0.05
and I set the width W as the parameter

According to the free space path loss formula:
Ploss = 20*log((4*Pi*d)/lambda)
d = distance in meters
lambda = wavelength in meters
Pi = 3.14
That means at 315 MHz the path loss at 100m is 62dB.
Assuming a 0dBd antenna gain on both sides, and ignoring other loss factors and interferers, your link budget should be ok for a pro

Long channels especially used in current mirrors to reduce lambda effect .
As lambda inversely proportional to L .Large area less is the mismatch.
Addressing skyismylimit question :I think Gate resistance would be the major factor considered while doing layout for large transistor .

u are talking of lambda, the channel length modulation parameter if i am not mistaken.
Hspice gives "gds" for MOS and inverse of that is R.
But lambda should be provided by the foundry, if they donot provide it, then we need to chracterise our mos.
The process is given in appendix in Allen holberg.

In simple words,
In a transmission line applied with 1G Hz sinusoidal frequency all the points along the line will not have same potential.
They behave same as sinusoidal and repeat the same after some point of distance.
The minimum distance at which they posses is depend on the dielectric constant i mean it is related to lambda.

the channel length modulation, which is valid also for long channels, is very relevant in short channel MOSTs. In the simple parabolic equation, the lambda coefficient is inversely proportional to L, so for very short transistors the drain current increment with Vds is decisively relevant.

For a single frequency circuit, yes you can. The added lambda/4 (open end) behaves as a short circuit, so you can replace a short circuit for an open stub. You may experience some reduction in Q factor as the short circuit will not be zero Ohms (due to transmission line loss).
you should check your new solution over the full frequency range as

- beamwidth (in both planes)
- radiator element size and coupling
