Abstract : The patent describes a high frequency, corner reflector antenna comprising two screens of vertical wires positioned at right angles to each other and two active elements located there-between. The device is operable over a frequency bandwidth of 4:1 and can provide an azimuth pattern beamwidth of 45 degrees. The active elements comprise moderate-Q radiators tunable over a 2:1 frequency range whereby two frequencies can be transmitted simultaneously without the use of multicouplers.
