Abstract : Measurements are described in which the gain of the standard horns in the K and K sub alpha bands were determined at a number of frequencies. The two-antenna method was used. It is believed, after a detailed error analysis, that the gain is known to well within plus or minus 0.1 db at each frequency measured. The gain of the K-band horn was also determined at one frequency by numerically integrating the power pattern. This resulted in a gain value which confirmed that obtained using the two antenna method. (Author)
