Paper describe reduction of polarization losses and other optimizations in the design of a septum polarizer antenna feed configured in a circular waveguide. The goal is to improve the overall efficiency of a parabolic dish antenna system which will be used for EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) microwave communication.
