Theory and practice of measurements of antenna radiation characteristics in the near zone by the collimator method

V. I. Dranovskii, V. V. Ovsyanikov, V. M. Popel’


The radiation characteristics of apertures in the near and far zones are considered. The range of optimal distances between the antenna under test, collimator mirror, and radiator of the collimator mirror in the echoless compartment is determined. Characteristics of the collimator mirror and of the echoless compartment are included.
