Abstract:

The directional patterns produced by circularly disposed antenna arrays have many technical uses. These various applications may require varying degrees of accuracy, different rotational rates and different coupling efficiencies to produce optimum results for each. For use where directional accuracy is secondary but coupling efficiency a major consideration, inductively coupled goniometers may prove more desirable. This report discusses the various design problems and describes an experimental hand-positioned goniometer using inductive coupling from antennas to the phasing lines.
