The effect of the finite number of two-dimensional resonant scatterers - longitudinally slotted circular cylinder on forming the far-field radiation of line magnetic current is investigated. Location and orientation of unclosed cylinders providing the maximum directivity is determined numerically. The possibility of superdirective radiation of an antenna having a reflector made of resonant scatterers with cross-section dimensions smaller than a wavelength is shown.
