The end-fire array has elements parallel to each other and in the same plane.
Maximum radiation occurs along the axis of the array.

Matching stubs are used between elements to maintain current in the proper
The gain of a collinear antenna is greatest when the elements are spaced
from 0.4 to 0.5 wavelengths apart or when the number of elements is
The optimum gain of a broadside array is obtained when the elements are
A parasitic array consists of one or more parasitic elements with a driven
element. The amount of power gain and directivity depends on the lengths of
the parasitic elements and the spacing between them.
