Abstract : Variations in fundamental and harmonic antenna pattern and gain measurements as a function of distance were investigated in an attempt to establish an exact near-field far-field criteria. An exact relationship could not be developed due to the large number of parameters involved, however, d2/lambda was proven to be an acceptable relationship provided the test antenna is not extremely large.
