Abstract : An antenna array comprising a plurality of antenna elements formed from metal-clad boards and conductive pins. Two metal-clad boards are placed together to form a sandwich, the metal-clad surfaces of the boards forming the top and bottom walls of a waveguide. Pins are placed perpendicular to the clad surfaces to form the sidewalls. The signal is introduced by a coaxial probe in the broad wall of the waveguide in a conventional manner. A row of pins defines the backwall of the waveguide. (Author)
