Hello,
i need to realize some indoor/outdoor measure at 3.5Ghz.
For realize this measure is necessary a nonperturbative, x-y-z axis Rx antenna.
My idea is realize a narrow band measure with spectrum-analyzer, so a large-band probe for EMC measure is not good.
I don't find any antenna with this characteristic.
Build it is not too easy!!
Could anyone help me??

The least perturbing narrow band antenna is probably a quater-wave groundplane or quarterwave sleeve balun type.

The length is about 2.1 cm at 3.5GHz, the horizontal H plane radiation pattern is omni and the E plane pattern is fairly broad. Just strip back 2.1 cm of semi-rigid coax, and add a small ground plane of radial wires to the solid outer at right-angles to the center conductor

Calibrating the gain accurately might be a problem, although there is probably now enough field experience of ground-plane antenna gain that you could find enough references on the web

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
