A novel horn design is presented in this report which provides significantly better performance in terms of the pattern, impedance and frequency characteristics than normally obtainable. The modification necessary to accomplish these improvements is achieved with a moderate increase in the size and weight yet, the overall cost of design ad construction need not significantly increase. The basic concept utilizes an ordinary horn except that curved surface sections are attached to the outside of the aperture edges. Although all of the original studies associated with this new antennas were made using elliptic cylinder sections, they can be arbitrary smooth convex shapes which are attached to the horn such that the junction forms a smooth surface to the touch.
