antenna footprint and interference - 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.

 Post subject: antenna footprint and interference
Posted: Fri Mar 11, 2005 12:35 pm 
When placing antennas close to one another (such as on an antenna farm), spacing or isolation is a concern. I think what needs to be considered is the propagation pattern of the antennas and as long as the main lobes and minimal side lobes reach an adjacent antenna, there should be adequate separation. Does anyone have software recommendations to look at this sort of thing? Any other comments are welcome as well. I am trying to learn this subject and appreciate the advise.
