A comparative study of the wideband 400-1200 MHz higher-order probe and the narrowband 431 MHz first-order probe, in terms of their advantages and disadvantages for spherical near-field antenna measurements at P-band, is presented. The comparison is based on the experimental data and focused on pattern shape and other electrical characteristics, work efforts related to physical handling, probe calibrations, and post processing.
