Founders in the chamber

Our History

First founded in 2001 as RTCE.com, Antenna Test Lab Company grew towards its current capabilities with the completion of an RF anechoic antenna test chamber in 2004. Six years later, we upgraded our lab capabilities to 40 GHz and added all-new, ultra-broadband custom test antennas along with a fast spherical 2-Axis positioner. This year we are taking full vector gain data on all antenna evaluations: customers benefit from a full testing of circularly polarized antennas with LHCP/RHCP gains and axial ratios. Our antenna testing service has been able to delight our hundreds of customers by providing the best value and highest level of antenna performance insights. All of this while still focusing on cost-effective evaluations and innovations in antenna patterning. If you are enthusiastic about your antennas, then we can’t wait to work with you!

 

Who We Are

What sets us apart from other antenna testing services is our passion for all things RF and our commitment to supporting engineers, designers and others in the field. Co-founder and principal engineer Glenn Robb likes to say he was born an RF engineer. Since childhood, he has been fascinated with amateur radio and antennas. At age 17, he lived in his bedroom RF lab. Check out this photo! Now after almost 30 years of RF engineering, his passion for antennas and promoting their understanding is still going strong.
