The major features of a beam waveguide (BWG) antenna and the variety of feed system configurations that can be used with this type of antenna are described. The first BWG antenna built by NASA (DSS 13), and its microwave feed systems and their major components, such as the low noise amplifiers, passive microwave components, and the frequency selective mirrors used for multiple frequency operation or diplexing purpose, are discussed.<>
