Former RF TX power measurements of Masat-1 were re-checked within the National Communication Authority’s (NHH) shielded and reflexion-proof measurement laboratory. A preliminary simulation of the radiation pattern is plotted on this graph. According to the results, the Masat-1 antenna produces the same parameters in realistic measurements as in theory. 99 percent of incoming RF power is emitted (antenna input reflexion below -20dB).
RF TX power measurements of Masat-1
We have some photographs on the measurement process. Please note that the Masat-1 model shown in these pictures is only used for testing purposes, and has a different arrangement than the final version. More information can be found on HA7WEN’s website.
We would like to render thanks to the staff of NHH for their valuable cooperation.
