Comparison of Gains Determined from the Extrapolation and Pattern Integration Methods

Abstract

Scientists at the National Institute of Standards (NIST) have measured the gain of several antennas using two different methods. The first method is the three-antenna extrapolation method developed at NIST in the early 1970s. The second method is the pattern integration method. We compare gain results and gain uncertainties for several antennas using these two methods.
