Sectored antenna - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

 Post subject: Sectored antenna
Posted: Mon May 09, 2005 9:42 am 

My name is Manuel de la Puebla and I work for INDRA Systems (an Spanish technology employer). We are currently working on an ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) project.

We are having a problem finding the antenna for this application. It should be a sectored antenna which covers the 360 degrees in azimut with sectors of 17 dBi of gain (around this value) each.

I am in charge of the antenna and I am having a hard time looking for a vendor we can buy this antenna from. It would impossible for us to design this antenna on our own, because we don´t have the necessary means (anechoic chamber and materials).

Does anybody know of any antenna vendor where we can buy this kind of antenna or maybe have it custom designed ?

I will appreciate any suggestion.

Thank you very much in advanced.

Chez gallego, porque no preguntas a www.fractus.com ?

Es una empresa espanola de Barca que esta espezialisado en antenas y si no tenen lo que necesitas por lo menos saben donde conseguir algo asi.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
