Abstract

This paper describes a method for airborne evaluation and verification of the antenna patterns of broadcasting stations. Although it is intended for governmental institutions and broadcasters it may be also of interest to anyone who wants to evaluate large radiating structures. An airborne measurement to investigate the properties of the structure in all dimensions is needed. For complicated large transmitting arrays like multi-pattern VHF FM transmitters the accuracy offered with an airborne measurement is much higher than with any other type of “inspection”.
