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.[1] 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...
