Scanning Device for Sampling the Spatial Distribution of the E-field
This paper presents a low cost automatic system for
sampling the electric field in a limited area. The scanning area is a
flat surface parallel to the ground at a selected height. We discuss
in detail the hardware, software and all the arrangements involved
in the system operation. In order to show the system performance
we include a campaign of narrow band measurements with 6017
sample points in the surroundings of a cellular base station. A
commercial isotropic antenna with three orthogonal axes was used
as sampling device. The results are analyzed in terms of its space
average, standard deviation and statistical distribution.
