In the frame of the activity “Antenna Measurement Techniques and Facility Sharing” of the EU network ACE “Antenna Centre of Excellence” substantial attention has been devoted to perform a series of antenna measurement facility comparisons. The activities have been performed using SATIMO dual ridge horns in L, S and C band (SH800) and in Ku and Ka band (SH2000). This paper discuss the activities and preliminary results of the comparison campaign in Ku and Ka band using the SATIMO dual ridge 2-32GHz horn (SH2000). The activities include data collected from both ACE and non ACE participants in Europe and US during a 3 year period.
