Beam pattern measurement on offset Gregorian reflector mounted with a wideband room temperature receiver for the Square Kilometre Array
Paper i proceeding, 2018

We present measured on-dish beam patterns for a room temperature spline-profile quad-ridge flared horn (QRFH) feed designed for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Band 1 covering 350-1050 MHz. The feed and LNA package has been mounted on the offset Gregorian SKA precursor prototype telescope, Dish Verification Antenna 1 (DVA-1) located at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO) near Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. Telescope beam pattern cuts are measured by sweeping over the sun and adding corrections for the solar disk size, elevation and aperture efficiency. Sensitivity calculated with measured receiver noise show good agreement with the predicted performance.
