Abstract:

A circular array consisting of a center element and two concentric rings each having six elements is described. The center element, and one element in the outer ring are driven all of the others are parasites. This antenna is an extension of a parasitic previously developed by Simpson, which had only one ring. The second ring results in lower side lobes, and a slightly narrower main beam. Experimental results are given. Author
