Gridded Vivaldi Antenna Feed System for the Northern Cross Radio Telescope

Abstract

The design of a broadband antenna feed system for the cylindrical offset parabolic reflector of the Italian Northern Cross radio telescope is described. Its operative frequency band spans from the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) upper band, i.e. 120-240 MHz, to the present telescope operative band centered at 408 MHz. The proposed configuration consists of a… (More)
