The center-feed in a single-layer slotted waveguide array- is one of the key components in polarization division duplex (PDD) wireless systems. Two center-feed arrays with orthogonal polarization and boresight beams are orthogonally arranged side-by-side for transmission and reception, simultaneously. Each antenna has extremely high XPD (almost 50 dB in measurement) and a very high isolation (over 80 dB in measurement) between two arrays is observed provided the symmetry of slot arrangement is preserved . Unfortunately, the area blocked by the center feed causes high sidelobe levels. This paper proposes the ridged cross-junction multiple-way power divider for realizing blockage reduction and symmetrical slot arrangement at the same time.
