Abstract : In addition to the usual effects of distance, orientation, and frequency, the following factors and their interactions were evaluated for the tests conducted on the USS Randolph: antenna tilt, aircraft-antenna angle, and distance from the end of the flight deck. Many conditions on shipboard can not be simulated by the existing ground planes. Hence, ground plane tests can only be used to identify variables and their general behavior. (Author)
