Abstract [en]

To accurately determine radio coverage, it is necessary to have an omnidirectional antenna pattern. Our measurement results show that this is not the case for an antenna mounted on a vehicle. We present two improved antenna solutions with an additional ground plane in the form of a disk and a corrugated cone. The peak-to-peak variation in the horizontal plane is then reduced from 5 to 2.5 dB and 1.7 dB, respectively. Although our results are limited to a medium-size vehicle and frequencies around 2 GHz, we believe that they are of interest for all measurements where high accuracy is desired.
