This paper investigates the practicability of some well known antenna array calibration algorithms and gives a deeper insight into existing obstacles. Analysis on the validity of the common used calibration model is presented. A new effect in modeling errors is revealed and simulation results substantiate this theory. The research goal was to simplify calibration procedures for antenna arrays which are used for direction-of-arrival estimation.
