In this paper, a pyramidal horn antenna with slotted waveguide is presented. PEC (Perfect Electric Conductor) material is used in construction of proposed horn antenna. The proposed antenna can be used in satellite communications as it has high directivity and less return loss. The antenna operates in Ku band at an operating frequency of 13.24GHz. The return loss, VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio), directivity and beam width of the proposed antenna at the mentioned operating frequency -67.255346dB, 1.008679, 24.00dB and 8.1 degrees respectively.
