RF Experts: 3 x 2dBi Dipole Antennas on Asus RT-N16 - RF Radiation Pattern & Modifications?
I've studied Antenna design back in engg college at Uni. Whole bunch of TV, Video, & Satellite stuff. Different Antenna Designs and Signal Radiation Patterns. Omni v/s Directional Antennas. Its been ages since I looked into that stuff.
I've seen the Radiation Patterns for single Diploes and the differences in Directional v/s Omni.
I am wondering whats the cumulative Radiation Patterns of the 3 x 2 dBi antennas on the ASUS RT-N16.
Or Any typical 3 x Omni-directional Antennas that are together.
And, what would be the effect, if one of those Antennas was taken away by couple of meters.
Are there any Free Apps S/W to model this easily?
www.data-alliance.net/Page.bok?template=antennas-omnidirectional-dipole - This also shows why some people might experience WORSE signal / coverage after going for a HIGHER dB Antenna. The Antennas Vertical radiation decreases.
Or is there a better SITE/ Forum where I could go discuss this and get inputs?
PS: I think Toastman mention in one his articles that he was an RF engineer by profession. ??
