History of the NSMA Standard
At the meeting of Study Group 16 - Antenna Patterns of The National Spectrum Manager's Association (NSMA), it was decided to establish a standard format for the electronic transfer of antenna patterns between the manufacturers, consultants, coordinators and users. This transfer would expedite the transfer of information as well as increase the accuracy.
