Short summary
Near-field far-field transformations are commonly performed for time-harmonic fields. Considering in-situ measurement scenarios with given transmission signals, time-varying aspects of modulated signals have to be taken into consideration. Two methods for the measurement of modulated fields are investigated and characterized, which work with a time-domain representation of the radiated fields and, at the same time, allow to employ the standard time-harmonic near-field far-field transformation.
