Antennas for EMC testing

Antennas for EMC testing

Antennas for EMC testing

Hello all. I would appreciate your help with an EMC question. I am a not a serious radio guy, but I am the closest thing to that on our project team. I have been tasked with doing some pre-EMC testing and need help selecting the correct antenna(s).

We need to test some materials for EMI attenuation rate, then assemble the materials and check the EMI attenuation inside the assembly. The test assembly can be of a reasonable size to house the spectrum analyzer and the antenna.

The testing needs to check EMI attenuation from 100 kHz to 1 GHz. I am hoping that there would be one directional-type antenna that would cover that range, but I'm having a difficult time finding a match.

So, I'm hoping there is an expert in this group who would be willing to give me some advice. Can you help by suggesting what antenna(s) I need to conduct the test? I need to know antennas for both the transmit and receive side.

Thanks in advance,
