A spiral array radial line slot antenna (SA-RLSA) is designed in 22GHz band. A SA-RLSA excited with a coaxial feeder suffers from aperture illumination fluctuation in amplitude and phase in the circumferential (φ-) direction while in the radial direction, reasonably uniform distribution is observed. Rotational symmetry of radiation patterns is degraded and especially the sidelobe levels are unbalanced. This fluctuation is associated with the generation of the higher order modes in the φ-direction and is the unique defect of SA-RLSA which uses oversized waveguide. In this paper, a novel feeding structure with two pairs of parasitic pins around a coaxial feeder is proposed and designed so as to compensate the rotational asymmetry of aperture illumination. A measurement using the model antenna designed in 22GHz band demonstrates the enhancement of the rotational symmetry; the circumferential fluctuation is reduced from 5.1dB and 33 degrees to 1.8dB and 12 degrees, while the fluctuation in the first sidelobe level suppressed from 10.7dB to 1.2dB.
