Abstract : The patent describes a circularly symmetric antenna system capable of providing retro-directive retransmission of a modulated or an encoded incident signal, or having the ability of being employed as a bi-static relay where retransmission may be directed from the initiating station. Also the system may be used to provide selective automatic suppression of a retransmission in an unwanted direction.
