Horn Antennas

Rectangular, conical, corrugated, Potter, Scrimp and ridged horn antennas

Horn antennas come under the classification of aperture antennas. And are most commonly used at microwave frequencies. Such antennas are used in space applications. Horn antennas are used as feeding elements for large radio astronomy, satellite tracking, and communication dishes. These antennas are also used in phase array applications.
