Measuring and simulating antenna efficiency - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I am using HFSS to simulate antenna efficiency for small planar antennas on 2.4GHz, but I tend to not trust the results.
Is there a way of measuring or at least trustily simulating the antenna efficiency?
Links, books or personal experience will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
HS

Hi Humane Society,

You may try to simulate it in ADS momentum, the result is much better than HFSS.
