Probe correction aspects for the spherical near-field antenna measurements are investigated. First, the spherical mode analyses of the radiated fields of several antennas are performed. It is shown that many common antennas are essentially so-called odd-order antennas. Second, the errors caused by the use of the first-order probe correction  for a rectangular waveguide probe, that is an odd-order antenna, are demonstrated. Third, a recently developed probe correction technique for odd-order probes is applied for the rectangular waveguide probe and shown to provide accurate results.
