    A wide-scanning multiple-beam reflector antenna, two systems are investigated. A bifocal antenna, designed with the use of an existing method, appears to be unsuitable for wide-angle scanning. A dual-reflector offset torus-antenna showed promising results. As an illustration of its benefit, a possible application is examined: the simultaneous reception of signals from a number (n) of geostationary direct broadcast satellites with mutual distance of 6 degrees. Using this antenna yields advantage when compared, with respect to the total required reflector area, with n separate antennas.
