Antennas for radiation emission measurement are treated separately from antennas for radiated susceptibility testing to show the importance of different antenna parameters in the two cases. With antennas for emission measurements the key parameters are bandwidth, sensitivity, dynamic range and absence of cross or intermodulation products in the case of active antennas with built in amplifiers. Important parameters for antennas used in susceptibility measurements include bandwidth, gain/power requirement, beamwidth/ spot size, power dissipation, size and mass. Such topics arc discussed in the following chapter. This one looks in detail at the types of receiving antennas that are widely used for radiated emission testing. They are discussed in sequence, beginning with the passive monopole which has the least complicated construction.
