Scanning height for ANSI C63.5 calibrations

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Scanning height for ANSI C63.5 calibrations ' The configuration of antennas at an open area test site (OATS) for calibrations results in constructive and destructive electric fields. Regardless of the calibration method used, the antenna to be calibrated should be located where the field varies slowly. We derive the conditions for a slowly varying field near the location of constructive interference as a function of the height of the transmitting antenna and the field geometry. We show experimental data taken by keeping the receiving antenna fixed per the ANSI standard and scanning the transmitting antenna in height. Repeatability of antenna factor data is improved to less than /spl plusmn/0.3 dB by avoiding nulls in the field.
