Antenna Gain - 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.

Dear All,
As part of a radar project it is necessay for me to do null steering using FM dipole antennas (88 - 108 MHz). I intend to place a null in the dipole polar pattern in the direction of the transmitter. My question is: Is is better to use FM dipoles that have a gain in the order of 10 or 11 dBi (the likes of which sold by Lindsay Antennas out of Canada) or simply using omnidirectional FM dipoles?
