Measuring and simulating antenna efficiency - 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 HFSS to simulate antenna efficiency for small planar antennas on 2.4GHz, but I tend to not trust the results.
Is there a way of measuring or at least trustily simulating the antenna efficiency?
Links, books or personal experience will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
HS

Hi Humane Society,

You may try to simulate it in ADS momentum, the result is much better than HFSS.
