    We have studied experimentally the excitation of propagating spin-wave modes of a microscopic Permalloy-film waveguide by a stripe antenna. We show that due to the strong quantization of the spin-wave spectrum, the excitation of particular modes has essentially different frequency dependencies leading to a nonmonotonous variation of the modulation depth of the resulting spin-wave beam as a function of the excitation frequency. In addition, we address the effect of nonreciprocity of spin-wave excitation and found that for the case of Permalloy microwaveguides this effect is much weaker pronounced than for waveguides made from dielectric magnetic films with low saturation magnetization.
