Abstract:

This paper presents a summary of array-element characteristics for a wide-band, dual-polarized, array where the extension in bandwidth is achieved by extending the lower frequency limit. Array-element behavior over the lower part of the band is described in detail. A lower frequency limit of operation is advanced based on element mismatch loss and efficiency. It is then shown that low active VSWR and good efficiency can be achieved over a two active band. Author
