Satellite Communications/radiation pattern
I have an antenna of 9 mts before to talk to the satellite operators they
ask me what is my radiation pattern in my reception
How can I do my radiation pattern in the reception
what are the terms?
Thank you Im looking forward for your answer
Have a nice day
Please refer to the following websites for a detailed answer to your question.
indicates that a radiation pattern defines the variation of the power radiated by an antenna as a function of the direction away from the antenna. This power variation as a function of the arrival angle is observed in the antenna's far field.
defines the far field and the conditions that must be satisfied to be in the far-field region.
provides a menu relating to antenna measurements and it describes the equipment that you will need: the source antenna; the transmitting systems; the test antenna; the receiving system; and the positioning system.
describes the various types of ranges.
describes how to measure the antenna gain as a function of the spherical angles theta (ϴ) and phi (Ф). Please note the caveat near the end of this web page: the radiation pattern that you measure is correct for a given polarization of the source antenna.
The attached figure illustrates what you might expect to find. It shows gain versus theta (ϴ).
I hope that this answers your question satisfactorily. If it does not, please get back to me. However, if it does, I would appreciate it if you would complete the survey.
Mis mejores deseos para el Aņo Nuevo.
