Leaky Coaxial Cable (LCX) is an antenna array used for many applications such as train communication, highway information broadcasting and object detection sensors. We propose leaky Coaxial cable which it can continuously scan a directive beam over a wide range of angles by just varying the frequency with improved radiation efficiency. Furthermore, we can obtain a continuous directive beams over the top and the bottom face of the LCX by adding slots array at both sides.
