3D Antenna Patterns

3D patterns can be defined in any coordinate system. Spherical coordinate systems are most commonly used to define antenna patterns.

Figure 1. Coordinate system for 3D antenna patterns.

Figure 1 shows the coordinate system used in WinProp for the 3D display of antenna patterns. The main direction of radiation is ϑ = 0° and φ = 0°.

Figure 2 to Figure 4 show the 3D pattern as well as the vertical and horizontal plane of a Kathrein K739856 antenna together with the coordinate systems used for display in AMan.
