Abstract:
This paper proposes two methods for increasing the Gain of Vlasov Antenna. The first method, using a Parabolic Cylinder Reflector, results in a 7dB increase in the Gain. The second method, constructing a Horn on the aperture, increases the Gain by about 5dB. The results were checked using a prototype antenna and there was a close agreement.
