ABSTRACT
The article describes how antenna test range instrumentation can be upgraded to permit testing at higher frequencies. NSI offers frequency up and down conversion units to upgrade such antenna test ranges. A typical radio frequency (RF) subsystem for an electrically small antenna test range is presented.
