The application of the holography technique to the newly constructed NASA/JPL Deep Space Network (DSN) 34-m beam-waveguide antenna, resulting in 4.1-dB performance improvement at 32 GHz by reducing the main reflector RMS surface error at 0.43 mm, is described. The improved antenna performance was verified by additional holographic measurements and efficiency measurements at X-band (8.45 GHz). Microwave holography has been demonstrated to be a required tool for achieving antenna aperture efficiency of 52% at Ka-band (32 GHz) and is probably necessary for maintaining an operational DSN Ka -band ground antenna capability
