Abstract:

A requirement exists to develop a monitoring capability for air traffic control radar beacon system ATCRBS ground station equipments. The National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center NAFEC has conducted tests of the NAFEC dipole-feed beacon antenna NADIF antenna to determine if it can be monitored in the electrical near and far field of the antenna. The data indicate that the antenna can be monitored in the near field on the standard antenna tower, providing the monitor pickup probe is carefully positioned.
