Title: MULTI-FEED DIELECTRIC ANTENNA SYSTEM WITH CORE SELECTION AND METHODS FOR USE THEREWITH
Abstract:
In accordance with one or more embodiments, an antenna system includes a dielectric antenna having a feed-point, wherein the dielectric antenna is a single antenna having a plurality of antenna beam patterns. At least one cable having a plurality of conductorless dielectric cores is coupled to the feed-point of the dielectric antenna, each of the plurality of conductorless dielectric cores corresponding to one of the plurality of antenna beam patterns. A core selector switch couples electromagnetic waves from a source to a selected one of the plurality of conductorless dielectric cores, the selected one of the plurality of conductorless dielectric cores corresponding to a selected one of the plurality of antenna beam patterns.
