If you use 3D EM simulator, you can draw your spiral against a ideal antenna with a azimuth and elevation angles,then you can check the s-parameters and since the applied power/voltage to the ideal antenna, you can also find induced and appeared voltage/power at the terminals of the looks like antenna chamber..

Due to parasitic effects on element, it behaves differently than expected. For inductor,due to parasitic capacitance between windings, coupling to ground and series resistance of the wire, circuit model is not a single inductor but combination of inductor capacitor and resistors.

"Antennas" at this frequency are basically inductors operated at resonance. The magnetic distribution is what you know from spiral inductors, no RF surprises at this frequency.
2kW is a lot of power, given that the inductor is operated at resonance with rather high Q factor.

You have to reduce the Q factor of the inductor:

- Width-to-spacing ratio and the outside diameter affect the Q of the spiral inductor.
