Continuous Sweeps For Your Antenna Testing Projects

Customer interest in testing single frequency antennas is now rare. All test projects benefit from swept tests that cover the intended operating band(s) and beyond. Testing outside of the operating band(s) can sometimes reveal tuning issues with antennas, as well as future-proof your data when operating specifications expand.

When testing via the gain substitution method, the maximum possible sweep ranges are dictated by the overlapping ranges of the calibrated reference antenna chosen, and the quad-ridge chamber antenna available. Our antenna testing service features the widest broad band antennas available.

Our Three Ultra-Wide Maximum Sweep Ranges:

  • 300 – 6000 MHz
  • 1.5 – 18 GHz
  • 18 – 40 GHz

Of course, any subset of these ranges is often more useful. For example, a test program for many cellular antennas is 600 to 2700 MHz every 10 MHz (211 steps). This means there are 211 “patterns” available for plotting or viewing on your desktop. If this were a 3D spherical test program, customers would also receive a graph of radiation efficiency vs frequency from 600 to 2700 MHz. Want to know more, please explore our Educational Section. We would love to talk, just contact us and tell us about your project. Our antenna testing company has been built on helping customers !
