Abstract

The paper presents the method of antennas radiation patterns measurements in the near zone. Afterwards, using the analytical methods, the measured data is transformed into radiations patterns in the far field. This technique is used in measurements in the closed areas, which enable researchers to manage the environmental characteristics. The calculated radiation patterns are as precise as the range measurements in the far field. It needs to be outlined however that this method requires more complex and expensive regulation procedures as well as more sophisticated software, whereas the radiation patterns are not obtained in the real time. Keywords: antennas radiation, near zone, far field.
