dc.description.abstractSmall telemetry antennas (under ten feet) are popular on many ranges due to ease of handling and low cost. Unfortunately spillover, taper loss, diffraction loss, aperture blockage and feed efficiency can combine to reduce overall antenna efficiencies under ten percent. Even for a low cost antenna system, these are unacceptable losses. This paper characterizes these losses and introduces an efficient feed with a scanning acquisition beam specifically for small reflectors.
