Abstract : A corner reflecting antenna is truncated by a reflecting plate. Two rows of dipoles are placed near the throat of the corner reflector (but in front of reflecting plate) and aligned parallel to sides of the antenna. The dipoles are placed at locations that are near multiples of odd quarter-wavelengths from the truncated surfaces. Dipoles lie in the same plane parallel to be truncated surface and equidistant from the sides of the antenna. The rows of the dipoles fed separately by way of two power splitters, a phase shifter and a magic-tee. (Author)
