New observations related to the use of a dielectric substrate and an actual feed, in obtaining the interference pattern used in the synthesis of planar holographic antennas, are provided. It is demonstrated that the inclusion of the dielectric substrate, and actual feed effects, in holographic antenna realization, improves the antenna performance.
