I expect you have already seen my previous email in reply. It all comes back
to the efficiency which you aim for. It would make sense to avoid holes and
look at narrow various short slots oriented at various angles. Various in
this context equals chaotic..a minor problem for a computer controlled
moulding or punching machine programmer. Note that chaotic is not the same
thing as random (mathematically speaking).
Now if you have a long narrow slot (filled or not with a connector)
surrounded by an array of chaotic slots (as described above), will the
combination attenuate the radiation compared to the slot only??
