Antenna Bench - 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'm a student in RF. I have to realize a measurement bench to measure and simulate an antenna comportment, and extern influences so that to be able to predict performances, and i have to create the whole protocole. I'd like to know if some one have some clues about how to begin my investigation, and where to get informations about possibly interferences on performances.

Thank You very much.

Greetings RF-Ban:

As with for most topics, there is a huge amount of information available on antenna testing and simulation. Here are a few suggestions for finding that data, many of which you may have already tried.

- Google Search (probably how you ended up on RF Cafe)
. ... sitesearch

- Antenna and test equipment vendor websites
. Antenna Vendor List -
. Test Equipment Vendor List -
. ... ipment.htm
. Shielded Enclosure Vendors -
. ... hields.htm

- Posting on Forums (as you already have)

Hopefully, others here or on other forums will offer some you some advice. You might want to provide more specific questions rather than ask such a broad question.
