Microwave Journal published the RFX2 application note about testing large antennas on your lab-bench
Calgary, AB, Canada – January 14, 2014: Microwave Journal published the RFX2 application note about "A Very-Near-Field Measurement Technique to Test Large Antennas in the Lab". Very-near-field antenna measurements have been performed with an array of probes to provide real-time pattern and radiated power measurements. One of the limitations of this approach has been that the antenna must be smaller than the sampling array. This application report mentions a new method which can measure an arbitrarily large antenna by combining together multiple very-near-field snapshots.
