wiki/ news/ 2003-10-10 - Second test of v2 CPAs in PSU Microwave Lab: they're all way below the design frequency, but have great VSWR's

In attendance: Glenn and Andrew

Testing of version 2 Cylindrical Patch Antennas

We went to the PSU Microwave Lab in the FAB and tested all three CPAs that were built out in Nevada on the HP 8753E vector network analyzer (VNA). Here are the results.


Test of the 2.422 GHz CPA

-3dB point 2.259
Resonance 2.293 (SWR = 1.07)
-3dB point 2.327
