Dielectric Communications, a manufacturer of broadcast antenna systems has included new state-of-the-art test equipment in its new high-performance testing facility in Raymond, ME. With its new facility, company test personnel hope to expand their RF testing capabilities and to achieve full isolation of the variables that affect the performance of its antennas, filters, and other components. The heart of the new facility is a 60-ft. tapered electromagnetic anechoic chamber that has been optimized to measure radiation patterns from 400 MHz to 5 GHz. Since both the source antenna and the antenna-under-test operate with rotational flexibility, horizontal, vertical, elliptical, and circularly polarized antennas can all be completely and efficiently evaluated within the chamber. The facility also can test integrated active component noise figures with its new noise figure meter that ensures low-noise operation.
