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.
