In this paper, equations are derived for solving the important geometrical parameters of the ring-focus antenna with a variable focal distance for forming an elliptic beam, a simple and efficient method for this antenna is presented, and measured and calculated patterns are given. This antenna can form a high-efficiency elliptic beam.
