A system that has an array of dielectric rods at the center of a waveguide was previously suggested for single mode propagation with a wide frequency range. However, it is difficult to introduce the wave source from a coaxial cable, due to use of the TE10-like and TE20-like modes. In this investigation, an asymmetric setup of the dielectric rods is proposed for better coupling efficiency of the TE10 mode.
