The design of a linearly polarised contoured beam reflector antenna for a European coverage requirement is described. The antenna is a 1.1 m offset reflector, fed by an array of only five rectangular feed horns, operating in a 10.7¿11.7 GHz band. The minimum gain requirement of 28 dBi for the contoured beam, in contrast to the current ECS-1 CEPT (Conference Europeenne de Poste et Telecommunication) elliptical Eurobeam gain requirement of 25 dBi, is achieved.
