Amotech GPS antenna - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I am using the following antenna to form an array that can radiate two different patterns with appropriate switching.

http://www.amotech.co.kr/__Data/_uploads/antenna/01%20GPS%20Antenna/GPS_Patch_Pin%20Type/Datasheet_YDRA-A25-1575%20(Rev%200).pdf

First mode is called anti-jam mode and we request highest directivity as possible. I am ok with this.

Second mode is normal mode and we want a radiation similar to stand-alone antenna, Which is 5 dB peak gain and 90-100 degree HPBW. Despite all my trials I havent been able to achieve this mode. When I activate one element of the array, gain reduces significantly due to mutual coupling, when I activate two elements, hpbw decreases. Increasing element spacing reduces coupling however axial ratio deteriorates this time. How I can I achieve those two beamform properly?

I am using FEKO and can upload feko files upon request.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
