This note highlights the connection of antenna gain to the measurement of insertion loss based on established SNF formulations, relating directly among antenna transmission coefficients, antenna gain, acquired SNF raw scan data and the parameters acquired during a range insertion loss measurement. It shows how the measured insertion loss parameters are applied in normalizing raw SNF scan data in determining antenna gain.
