Beam Factor Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Calculate beam factor using this simple dish antenna calculator online.

The beam factor is approximately invariant with antenna size, but does vary with type of antenna aperture illumination or taper. The beam factor typically varies from 50-70.

Beam Factor Calculation

Formula:

BF = (D/?)×(Beamwidth)

where,
D - antenna dimension in wavelengths,
? - wavelength,
BF - beam factor.
