The dipole antenna DPA 3000 operates as a field strength measuring antenna in the frequency range 800 to 2800 (3000*) MHz. The DPA 3000 is constructed so that it can be converted easily to a Reference Radiation Source in combination with the Reference Spectrum Generator RSG 3000. It provides reference measurements between open area test sites and alternative facilities as e.g. anechoic chambers and GTEM-cells.
It may be used for calibration of these alternative facilities as well as for quick checks of antennas and test set-ups. Further this combination can be used to measure the attenuation of absorbing material or the shielding effectiveness of screening materials.
