Antenna Gain and Antenna Radiation Patterns Explained
Based on both the azimuth and elevation polar plots, a customer can determine where the antenna gets the best gain and select the most suitable antenna for their project. The example above shows an omnidirectional antenna with gain that is rather even at all azimuth angles. This will be drastically different from a directional antenna that will offer higher gain values that are concentrated in a particular direction. Stay tuned for our next #techtuesday where we will take a deeper dive into antenna patterns and further discuss antenna selection.
