In this paper, an antenna with reconfigurable radiation pattern in H-plane at 2.45 GHz for high power applications is presented. It is based on a 3-slot array in E-plane covered partially with two mobile metallic flaps in order to reduce their length, and in consequence, they ensure the mechanical reconfiguration pattern in H-plane. The power distribution of the array is ensured with a power splitter in E-plane, and the uniform and in phase field distribution on the slots is ensured with a sectorial horn placed before the splitter. To reduce cost and weight, the power splitter is realized with metalized wood.
