It is necessary to form a plane coherent wavefront in the hf-section of line arrays. Several different concepts have been applied to reach this goal. We discuss these existing solutions. The different ideas on how to create a cylindrical wavefront will be explained and evaluated. Especially those waveguides which have their weak point in the theoretical design will be criticized. An explanation on how we developed a new waveguide will be given. Finally, we want to give some ideas on how the next generation of waveguides could be designed. Basically, five principles of forming flat wavefront are in use.
