In addition, the phase different between the second arms of the spiral slot and the conventional fed spiral explains why it has elliptical polarisation rather than circular polarisation expected from the spiral shape.
Also, from Figures 8 to 19 it is apparent that the spiral slot shows elliptical polarisation.
Offering either horizontal or elliptical polarisation, the nonpressurised DLP-V and pressurised TLP-BB are stand-alone products that feature simple mechanical designs for ease of installation.
This horizontally polarised antenna may be configured to include varying levels of vertical polarisation with results ranging from small amounts of elliptical polarisation.
