AbstractA broad band millimeter wave finline antenna includes a finline transmission means having a flared end portion formed by tapering the adjacent edges of the finline elements and affixing planar sectoral conducting members to the tapered edges. The finline transmission means may be mounted in a housing that provides a transition for coupling the antenna to exterior waveguides or other transmission means.
