It is important that the radiator spacing is not a multiple of half a guide wavelength so that reflections from the radiators have a different phase at the feed input and tend to cancel each other.
Moreover, as the steps are usually separated by sections in the range of one-quarter of the guide wavelength, these structures may serve as a validity test of the presented building block elements in a circuit CAD program for more compact structures.
