The performance of the printed single and double layer phase correcting arrays is theoretically investigated. The latest development of the single printed reflector is also reported. The effective design of a practical size single printed reflector for the reception of direct broadcasting by satellite is discussed, The reflector encompasses three full Fresnel zones and a quarter wave zone, with a 59.4 cm- diameter and 0.8 focal length to diameter ratio. A 43% optimum antenna efficiency and a bandwidth of greater than 10% are determined. The close-in sidelobes of the antenna are around -22dB and the far-out sidelobes are lower than -30dB.
