Abstract—We have designed a antenna feed with prime concerned that with the growing conjunctions in the mobile networks, the parabolic antenna are evolving as an useful device for point to point communications where the need for high directivity and high power density is at the prime importance. With these needs we have designed the unusual type of feed antenna for parabolic dish that is used for both reception and transmission purpose. This different frequency band performance having horn feed, works for the parabolic reflector antenna. We have worked on frequency band between 4.8 GHz to 5.9 GHz for horn type of feed. Here function of the horn is to produce uniform phase front with a larger aperture than that of the waveguide and hence greater directivity. Parabolic dish antenna is the most commonly and widely used antenna in communication field mainly in satellite and radar communication.
