Abstract:

A Ku band slotted waveguide antenna having a cosecant squared radiation pattern is described. The antenna was designed and constructed by means of a method utilizing displaced, inclined, shunt slots in the broad face of WR 62 waveguide. A gain of 12 dB at 15.84 GHz was measured, with crosspolarization rejection of 20 dB. Design equations and curves are included. Author
