For the design of the satellite antenna for the future geostationary (GEO) satellite communication or DBS (direct broadcasting satellite) applications to serve the Taiwan Island region, it may be required to have a antenna beam which effectively covers the Taiwan region and reduces the antenna radiation level in the nearby area of mainland China. Two cases of the Ka-band (20 GHz) satellite antenna, a shaped offset reflector antenna to synthesize a contoured beam and an elliptical offset reflector antenna to generate an elliptical beam, have been studied. This paper presents the comparison and discussion of the antenna coverage performance of the two designs
