Discussed is a preliminary study of the Parkes antenna performance having a cluster of nine feed horns of which each horn is responsible for two orthogonal linear polarizations within a beam. This study aims to optimize Parkes radio-telescope antenna used to study the southern sky. Conventional horns are selected and arranged in the focal region in order to achieve a 2 HPBW beam spacing. The required sampling in u-v space is derived by the proposed rectangular grid of beams through simple two-fold interleaving in each spatial dimension.
