This is a short comparison survey of two commercially available antennas, the HBD-350 manufactured by Radarteam Sweden AB Boden, Sweden, and the RAMAC- 500MHz manufactured by MALÅ GeoScience AB Malå, Sweden. We got access to data collected with both antennas in approximately similar conditions and with the radar systems they were designed to work with. Both data sets were not altered in any way and can be considered to be what is called “raw data”.
First of all we decided to get some information about these devices, to get an idea of what to expect from the data sets. Our search for technical info was restricted solely to the respective websites of the antenna manufacturers.
