Abstract:

Sixteen-element short-backfire arrays have been shown to yield maximum gains of approximately 25 dB. The influence of parameter variations on the array patterns and directivity has been experimentally determined by varying the frequency. A table of the normalized design parameters for an area efficiency of approximately 90 percent is given for construction purposes. All array dimensions are indicated in wavelengths so that each application can easily be scaled for any desired frequency range.
