No, nose cone is not blocking. When in tracking mode the antenna can point downward to approximately -30° in elevation. Even in scanning mode with nose pointed above horizon (e.g. +20° pitch) the antenna can still scan normally it's pattern below horizon.

Yep, Frederf have right, nose cone not limitate radar antenna movement, because nose cone is fixed to radar frame, and whole device is moving forward and back during flight.
