MODEL AIRCRAFT L-BAND BEACON ANTENNA PATTERN GAIN MAPS

The document presents L-band antenna patterns for a variety of general aviation and air carrier aircraft; these patterns were based on scale-model measurements. The antenna patterns are described by aircraft-coordinate-referenced elevation vs azimuth gain-contour maps. This method of presentation conveniently displays the effects of aircraft configuration on antenna patterns and allows one to observe the changes in a pattern that result from a change in wheel, flap, or antenna location.
