A Generalized Horn Design to Optimize Directivity Control and Wavefront Curvature
A new horn design is presented. This approach yields good loading characteristics and reduced harmonic distortion. The new horns polar patterns are that of a constant directivity type horn. The novel feature of this new horn is that its apparent apices for the horizontal and vertical planes are in the same physical location regardless of coverage angle for the horizontal or vertical plane.
