W1GHZ Dual Band Corrigated Feed Horn Antenna Pattern Testing Polar Gain

Example 5: Dual Port Corrugated Feed Horn

Our antenna testing services were used to evaluate this dual band feed horn (designed by Paul Wade W1GHZ) for amateur radio satellite use. It has orthogonal feeds for two bands, 5.8 GHz and 10.4 GHz. Testing was done in one large sweep of 5 – 12 GHz (in 25 MHz steps) to save on setup […]

Photo 1 Pagoda 2 FPV LHCP Measured at Antenna Test Lab Co

Example 6: LHCP Omnidirectional FPV Antenna

This Example Test Report features a small LHCP omnidirectional antenna designed by the talented Maarten Baert. It is a sophisticatedly simple design with three PCBs on a semi-rigid coax and an SMA connector. This inexpensive antenna was designed for the 5.8 GHz WiFi market, targeting FPV (first person view or remote person view) drone control transceivers. When […]

small-PCB-Layout-Antipodal-Vivaldi-Antenna-With-Exponential-Taper-Slot-Edge

Example 7: Antipodal Vivaldi with Slot Edges

We had the pleasure of evaluating this “pretty” antenna. It goes by the formal name of an antipodal PCB Vivaldi antenna with exponential slotted edges. Although, it is better known as a Palm Tree antenna! This design is by Iain, the author of the HexAndFlex Blog. Our antenna testing services were used to evaluate this […]

Example 8: Triple Feed Patch Array CP Antenna

Here are vector gain test results of  Maarten Baert’s  latest circularly polarized 5.8 GHz antenna. There are two versions covered here: a CP Triple Feed (single) Patch and a Triple Feed Patch Array. First the Triple Feed Patch. The designer’s vision is: “The (center) patch has three feed pins that are fed with a 0°, […]

Ka Band Sector Horn 3D Radiation Gain Pattern Testing in Anechoic Chamber Feature

Example 9: Ka Band Sector Horn

Our lab can perform measurements up through 40 GHz covering the Ku, K, and Ka bands. To highlight this capability, we have patterned a surplus WR28 wave-guide fed sector horn. Since this horn has a beam width of only 6.5 degrees in the E-plane, it was patterned with our high resolution options. The H-plane is […]

Photo Measured Antenna Gain for LEO Satellite RHCP Circularly Polarized 70 cm

Example 10: Eggbeater LEO Satellite 432 MHz (70cm)

This omnidirectional circularly polarized antenna is designed for up-facing coverage of Low Earth Orbit Satellites. It is model EB-432/RK70CM from M2 Antenna Systems. Their website description is: ” The EB-432 EGGBEATER offers exciting new performance characteristics for both fixed and mobile operations. The EGGBEATER produces smooth Omni directional HORIZONTAL polarity at the horizon. Above the horizon, the […]

Intruder Detection Radar Modules CDM324 HB100 RCWL-0516

Example 13: Radar Modules

Low Cost Microwave Radar Modules For 3, 10, and 24 GHz This example page showcases 3D EIRP radiation patterns for three popular consumer/hobbyist radar modules. All three are normally used for proximity sensing and intruder detection. The study of these similarly sized transmitters at 3, 10, and 24 GHz highlights the ability of antennas to […]

Spiral Antenna PCB for UWB Front Icon DEEPACE

Example 14: UWB Spiral Antenna

This example page showcases our circularly polarized antenna testing with swept frequency 3D patterns and a 4D gain vs frequency animation video. The antenna was purchased on eBay for $7.49 and shipped directly from China. The basic specifications were simply listed as 3 to 6.5 GHz with a gain of 3.5 dBi circularly polarized. The […]

Gain dBi test service measured Ethertronics Octa Band PCB antenna

Example 1: Ethertronics Octa-Band

This antenna test service focuses on a popular ultrawideband embedded cellular antenna. It covers the 700, 750, 850, 900, 1800, 1900, and 2600 MHz bands. We tested it on Ethertronics’ own “demo board”, which is a 140x50mm ground plane PCB with SMT matching components. We chose 3D patterns with a frequency range of 650 to 2700 MHz […]

Example 2: Polar Plots of PCB LPDAs

Two Inexpensive PCB Antennas Descriptions Our antenna test service evaluated two PCB antennas designed by Kent Britain WA5VJB. They are both Log Periodic Dipole Array (LPDA) antennas designed for the following ranges: Antenna “2A” Operating Range 400 – 1000 MHz Evaluated 300 – 1300 MHz (every 10 MHz, 101 frequencies) 2D polar cuts in the E and H […]
