Glenn and I had a conference call with Spencer about the design of the 4th generation linear cylindrical patch antennas.

Characterizing Er

We're really paranoid about getting the f_0 of the antennas right, since the CPAs are so narrow band. We thought of making up test patches, and then measuring the resonant frequency of the patch.

Making the antennas more wideband

Attached is a screencapture from a Goto meeting that we had, explaining some of the wider-bandwidth tricks.
