ME7868A Outdoor Antenna Range Solution

October 28, 2021

Antenna testing on outdoor test ranges presents a challenge for traditional VNAs. The distances involved in routing the signals between the antennas on the range and the VNA can typically preclude using coax cables because of significant insertion loss and phase instability. Additional hardware and complex methodologies are used to solve the long-distance interconnect issues, raising costs and time required to make antenna S-parameter measurements on outdoor ranges.
