This paper extends the authors previous simulation study that predicted the quality of the pseudo plane wave of a single offset compact antenna test range (CATR). In this paper, the quiet-zone performance predictions are extended to rigorously incorporate the effects of probing the CATR quietzone using arbitrary but known field probes. This paper compares and contrasts results obtained using plane-wavespectrum and reaction integral based simulation techniques. This investigation leads to recommendations as to the optimal field probe choice and measurement uncertainties. The results of these new simulations are presented and discussed.
