In this paper, a method based on clonal selection algorithm (CLONALG) is proposed for null steering of linear antenna arrays by controlling only the positions of selected elements. The CLONALG is a relatively novel population-based evolutionary algorithm inspired by the clonal selection principle of the human immune system. In order to illustrate the accuracy and flexibility of the proposed algorithm, several numerical examples of Chebyshev pattern with the single and double nulls imposed at the directions of interference are given.
