Antenna Balance vs Symmetry

Sep 10 2020 in News  

If you intend to use a hybrid antenna for final compliance measurements as per ANSI C63.4-2014, then the antenna must meet the symmetry requirements called out in Annex N of the document. But which condition should be used to determine compliance? Condition A or Condition B? And what frequency range is required for the symmetry test?
