The report provides an account of a new rhombic antenna array design and the resultant effect upon the antenna pattern resulting from this design. The intent of this effort was twofold, first to reduce the deep nulls in the vertical profile that existed with a horizontal single rhombic in order to obtain smooth vertical coverage from 2 degrees to 24 degrees in elevation and secondly, to reduce the first side lobe levels in the horizontal plane pattern of a single rhombic antenna.
