For the evaluation of antenna diversity systems a measurement system has bean realized which is able to record and store microwave satellite signals of up to four different antennas, simultaneously. The recorded signals are post processed by a software tool to determine the quality of the antenna concept in an antenna diversity system. As a figure of merit the signal cross-covariance and the diversity efficiency are taken into account.
