FDTD numerical study compared to the results of measurement is reported for double-ridged horn antenna with sinusoidal profile of the ridge. Different transitions from coaxial to double-ridged waveguide were considered on the preliminary step of the study. Next, a suitable configuration for feeding the ridges of antenna was chosen. The sinusoidal ridge taper is described in the next part of the paper. Finally, the simulations results of complete antenna are presented. Theoretical characteristics of reflection and antenna patterns are compared to the results of measurements showing acceptable accordance.
