This paper focuses on a comparison of possible techniques for grating lobes reduction, applicable to large deployable mesh reflectors based on a peripheral deployable ring. The techniques are applied to the same antenna configuration, and consider not only the theoretical positions of the tensioned net nodes, but also their realistic positions satisfying the condition of force equilibrium in the deployed configuration.
