Abstract: This report discusses a collection of microwave common carrier azimuthal antenna patterns. The patterns were digitized and stored into a uniformly formatted database. The primary application of this database is for interference prediction among common carrier transmitters sharing a common frequency. The database can be accessed via a BASIC computer program to determine the gain at any off-axis angle or the plot of the antenna pattern in either rectangular or polar coordinates. The results in this report are an extension to Hanson and Anderson (1981).

Keywords: vertical polarization; azimuthal antenna gain patterns; communication-satellite ground stations; microwave common carrier; radio-relay stations
