Introduction This document describes how to use EMQuest™ Viewer  to identify the beamwidths and the front-to-back ratio from the pattern information of ETS-Lindgren antennas. Steps to obtain the typical parameters that can be obt ained from the normalized radiation pattern are provided.

Customers interested in using the antenna as a feed t o a reflector can use the same procedure to obtain a 3 dB, half-power, or 10 dB beamwidth. Radiation pattern information is available for most E TS-Lindgren antennas. The antennas have been measured at the ETS-Lindgren A2LA-certified Calibration Lab. Two anechoic chambers for antenna measurement are located at the ETS-Lindgren facility in Cedar Park, Texas: •

Tapered anechoic chamber—For measurements 400 MHz to 6 GHz



Rectangular anechoic chamber—For measurements 700 MHz to 18 GHz

5.

Click the ZIP to extract the EMQuest Viewer executable. Click the executable to install EMQuest Viewer.

On the EMQuest™ Viewer page, click View Antenna Patterns to Download .

6.

Some of the antenna pattern files are full 3D patterns and some are principal plane cuts of the pattern. Later steps in this guide include instructions to extract the parameters for 3D patterns and 2D principal planes.

Step 4: Find Front-to -back Ratio and Sidelobe Level 1.

Using the steps in the previous sections, open the antenna patt ern file and obtain the polar plot in the two principal planes.

2.

Right-click on the plot to display the Graph Settings  window.

3.

Click the Scale tab and type the Y-axis setting in the Y Step  box. For an example, see step 6 on page 12.

4.

Click the Dimension Depth tab, and then move the slider to the desired frequency. Click OK .

5.

Click the Cursor Readout  button, and then move your cursor over the graph.

6.

Move the cursor to the largest sidelobe. The cursor readout will display the level and angle of the sidelobe. The level of the largest sidelobe is the sidelobe level for that given plane and frequency. In this example, the sidelobe level is -13.7 dB.
