It has become of current interest to understand how best to draw conclusions as to the effects of sources of error upon the accuracy of measured antenna patterns. In particular, when for a particular antenna, two pattern measurements made under slightly or somewhat different conditions are compared, how might one arrive at a conclusion as to which is the more nearly correct or the least uncertain pattern result ? Before attempting to address this question, it is important to realize that the method used to compare patterns must be examined for any anomalous artifacts. Here in this presentation I provide some background on how the equivalent stray signal method of pattern comparison came to be used in assessment of pattern accuracy and goodness of pattern result...
