A conical reflector antenna is disclosed with a feed that is either a close approximation to a line source or a cylindrical structure which is electrically equivalent to a line source. Nearly complete control of its aperture illumination function is achieved by exciting various amounts of the line source or cylindrical feed. In addition to beamwidth control of a collimated beam that is linearly or circularly polarized, phase-sensing monopulse operation is made possible by dividing a cylindrical feed structure into three equal sectors and incorporating conventional directional couplers for obtaining the difference between received signals from sectors on either side of a vertical axis for azimuth error, and the weighted difference between the sum of those signals and the signals from the third sector for an elevation error.
