Submission of the antenna radiation patterns

In the past when the measured co-polar radiation pattern of the antenna or the co-polar reference radiation pattern (C.10.d.5.a) of an associated earth station was submitted in graphical format, it was published as an attachment to a satellite network filing. In such a case, when the frequency assignment is examined with a view to determining coordination requirements or identifying the potential for harmful interference under No. 11.32A, the absence of mathematical representation of the antenna pattern leads to the default antenna pattern of RR Appendix 8, Annex III, being used instead.
In order to avoid such situations, whenever an antenna pattern is submitted in graphical format, the Bureau is now requesting administrations to submit antenna patterns that are either taken from the standard antenna pattern library or in the form of gain pattern equations that can be incorporated into the Bureau’s examination software.
Guidelines for the submission of new antenna patterns:
