Abstract : Measurements of near-field mutual coupling were performed between two moderate sized microwave antennas and compared to coupling calculated using recently developed computer programs. Required input data for the programs are the complex far-field radiation patterns of the antennas and various geometrical factors describing the relative positions and orientations of the two antennas. Experimentally determined and calculated coupling as a function of both transverse displacement and separation agree closely except for a constant offset observed in some cases. (Author)
