This file contains the horizontal and vertical radiation pattern of a antenna depending on the version of data.
There are 3 types of .ant files that can be used by Radio Mobile.
- Antennapattern file with only the horizontal plane of the radiation pattern.
This file is referred to as 'version 1'. See 'Antenna .ant format (V1)'
- Antennapattern file with the horizontal plane and 180 degrees (+90 to -90 degrees) of the vertical plane of the radiation pattern.
This file is referred to as 'version 2'. See 'Antenna .ant format (V2)'.
- Antennapattern file with both horizontal- and vertical plane in full 360 degrees.
This file is referred to as 'version 3'. See 'Antenna .ant format (V3)'
From version 9.6.5 Radio Mobile supports both horizontal- and vertical- plane in antenna patterns. It is advised to use the V3 antenna patterns for better simulation results.
