In a stadium installation of Wi-Fi, ideally a single access point could be used to illuminate a section with little interference from adjacent sections. This can be done with the use of a square beam. This thesis explores the creation of a square beam. The size of the array was reduced by removing low power elements. The sparse array allowed space for a sub-array to be placed in order to reactively cancel out sidelobes. A feed network was designed to provide the correct power and phases to the elements without the use of amplifiers or phase shifters. A number of power dividers were also a focus of this design. A return loss reduction method facilitates determining additional lengths of microstrip line without the need to simulate the full array. While the results of this prototype did not meet all specification, it does however, provide a framework to further explore.
