Abstract: An antenna rotator is a device to buffer and rotate an under test antenna. In this paper, an automatic antenna rotator using microcontroller can be made at a minimal cost. The designed microcontroller, used to set servo motor to rotate the antenna using remote control. The rotator antenna has three movement features to help the antenna measurement. The measurement results are represented in polarization and radiation pattern graphs.
Keywords: Rotator Antenna, Microcontroller, Motor Servo, Radiation Pattern, Antenna Measurement, Polarization.
