An advantage of horn antennas is that since they have no resonant elements, they can operate over a wide range of frequencies, a wide bandwidth. The usable bandwidth of horn antennas is typically of the order of 10:1, and can be up to 20:1. The input impedance is slowly varying over this wide frequency range, allowing low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) over the bandwidth. The gain of horn antennas ranges up to 25 dBi, with 10−20 dBi being typical. The possibility of a H horn antenna band widening is being discussed in the article. The technique of coaxial-waveguide transition for band widening is under consideration. Prototyping measurement results are shown. The main results of the presented work are the following: 1. A technical approach is offered for widening the band of H horn antenna. Technology stability and efficiency was proved by prototyping the several dozens of copies; 2. The circular rotating junction was found to have a heavy influence on antennae coupling.
