Dear OM, dear friend, check this link:
Since you have shown some interest following the publication of the article
"Ground Gain in Theory and Practice" in DUBUS 3/2011 or since I suppose you are
interested in the subject, I send you the present mail to advise you I have
updated my website with the following material:
At the URL
you will find 2 tools, under Excel format :
- Ground gain simulator : a tool to (theoretically) simulate the ground gain
(or an antenna elevation pattern in presence of ground effects) geometry and
magnitude. It is possible to choose the nature of the soil, antenna
height, frequency, ground flatness (horizontal or tilted) and to import one's
antenna (elevation) pattern, though six patterns are already embedded in
the tool. The First Fresnel zone geometry is also displayed and fully configurable.
below, two (partial) screenshots of this tool.:
- Ground gain processing file : a file that processes the data
measured off-the-air in order to assess one's own ground gain (or elevation pattern)
& geometry. This file is 95% automated through macro's. Once the data has been recorded, just a few clicks and a few minutes later, you get a pdf
of your measurement. An example of such a report is provided in attachment.
- The detailed procedure (and its associated tools, i.e. GJTracker,
Spectrum Lab + its .usr configuration file and the tools above) to make your
This procedure is also attached to the present mail. - Examples of real
off-the-air measurements, including the resulting reports and the
measured data files.
The complete package as a whole (.zip file) is also available on the
website (16 MB).
Feel free to forward to whom may be interested.
Should you be performing your own measurements, I'm eager to receive any
feedback related to them.
