This paper describes the outdoor transient ultra-wideband measurement test equipment. An ultra-short pulse generator supplies an UWB antenna. Time response of the antenna under test is collected. Time windowing eliminates parasitic reflections. Frequency response in the useful band of the antenna is computed, and field radiations are obtained.
