Abstract:

The purpose of the trials was primarily to check the performance of an electronically steered L-band aerial using transmissions from a transponder carried in a stratospheric balloon. At the same time measurements were made on an experimental slot-dipole aerial. Results on the narrow beam aerial showed little disturbance due to ground and airframe reflections fluctuations between 4 and 8 dB were recorded for the wider beam slot-dipole aerial.
