These beams are referred to as grating lobes. In practice, suppressing such parasitic lobes is required.

Lower sidelobe levels can be achieved by tapering the excitation of the array elements. Several techniques, such as the binomial or the popular Chebyshev methods (see Chapter 3 on array design) are used for controlling the sidelobe levels and the main beamwidth.

To avoid shadowing of the individual array elements, the grid must be relatively thin, and reasonable beam-shaping is achieved only by randomly distributing array elements to suppress grating lobes due to large element spacing.

Frequency Bands for Military and Commercial Applications 2-16 CHAPTER TWO antennas that are formed by two cylindrical dipoles and driven by a pair of transmission lines, and sleeved dipoles and monopoles, which are doubly fed antennas with the current at a maximum at the center of the dipole or base of the monopole. Their omnidirectional radiation patterns are well suited for terrestrial LOS communications over vast distances. Reflector antennas have high gain and are very directive making them well suited for earth-based stations communicating with satellites in orbit.
