Design Definition
Backfire An antenna consisting of a radiating feed, a reflector element, and a reflecting surface such that the antenna functions as an open resonator, with radiation from the open end of the resonator.
Biconical An antenna consisting of two conical conductors having a common axis and vertex.
Cassegrain Reflector A paraboloidal reflector antenna with a convex subreflector, usually hyperboloidal in shape, located between the vertex and the prime focus of the main reflector.
Cheese A reflector antenna having a cylindrical reflector enclosed by two parallel conducting plates perpendicular to the cylinder, spaced more than one wavelength apart.
Cloverleaf / Wheel
Collinear A linear array of radiating elements, usually dipoles, with their axes lying in a straight line.
Combination Planar
Conical Log Spiral
Corner Reflector An antenna consisting of a feed and a reflecting object consisting of two or three mutually intersecting conducting flat surfaces.
Crossed Dipole
Cycloid Dipole
