Probe compensated near-field measurement of the far-field of microwave antennas is reviewed with particular attention to the planar approach. Methods for reducing the data handling requirements are discussed. A small near-filed measurement facility currently being set up is described in which control and computation functions are preformed by a microprocessor. The ultimate objective of the project is to produce a portable near-field facility which could enable radiation patterns of microwave antennas to be measured in situ.
