Antenna Configuration

Antenna 1: Main Array

This array has a vertical spacing of 0.118m and a horizontal spacing of 0.118m. In the dataset's longitude / latitude coordinate system, it is located at N 48.747036°, E 9.105075°, with the center 10.1m above the ground, which corresponds to 527m above sea level. The antenna points in a direction that is characterized by a true-north based azimuth angle of 94° a downwards tilt of 26.5°.

Reference Channel Compensation

For this dataset, we are able to provide estimated antenna-specific carrier phase and sampling time offsets. These offsets occur due to the fact that the reference transmitter channel is not perfectly frequency-flat. To learn more about why these offsets occur and about their compensation, visit our offset calibration tutorial on this topic. Note that the estimates provided here are "best-effort" calculations. The phase and time offsets between antennas in the same array are usually very accurate, but for antennas that are spaced far apart, the results may be less precise. The offset are constant over the complete dataset.
