A measurement technique for Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) using planar near-field scanning has been demonstrated earlier. In this paper I show how we at MI Technologies have implemented using the spherical near-field method the measurement of EIRP and a vector phasor quantity analogous to Effective Area that we call Antenna Receive Response. This technique is applicable to all antennas, including active antennas.
