Antenna measurements are important both to the antenna designer and the antenna manufacturer. Measurement is an integral part of the design process, and the results of measurement of a prototype may be fed back to iteratively refine the design. In manufacture, it will be necessary to check that the performance of a product meets certain specifications.
