Abstract:

A study is presented of the wave-propagating properties of a pair of wire grids with square, hexagonal, or triangular mesh. The results of the investigation contains the information needed for designing a novel type of beam-scanning antenna, the wire-grid lens antenna that is particularly useful at HF. Of the 3 mesh types investigated, the hexagonal mesh exhibited the least amount of dispersion and anisotropy for a constant mesh area. Author
