Reference Antennas
Magnetic Dipoles
652.00 MHz – 5637.00 MHz

Magnetic Dipoles are used for gain reference, efficiency reference for low gain antennas or for a chamber reflectivity evaluation. The Magnetic Dipole or magnetic loop antenna is complementary to the electrical dipole, with a similar radiation pattern but in cross polarization. CTIA/3GPP low gain antenna measurement.
