In this chapter, you will learn of tools and techniques that overcome the limitations due to unknown source-model characterization and the complexity of the environment to be measured. The approach, based on the equivalent current (EQC) representation of an antenna, links measurement equipment/techniques with commercially available numerical computational tools to provide measurements of source antennas for simulations in the most complex of test environments.
