THC Model 3100 Wireless Device Antenna Test Lab
s
For decades, The Howland Company has been recognized as a leader in the design and development of antenna measurement methods, techniques, and facilities. We are now making our experience and expertise available directly to antenna developers. We offer measurement results with industry-leading accuracy and reliability, quick turnaround, and reasonable pricing.

What We Can Test
Antennas up to 36 inches (92cm) in diameter
Antennas up to 100 pounds (45kg) in weight
Frequency range of 700MHz to 18GHz
Parameters We Can Measure

Gain
Directivity
Efficiency
Patterns
Polarization
Total Radiated Power (TRP)

Test Data Formats
