Equal sector with peak average can be performed on frequencies with unwanted peak emission, which are considered by the peak method for further measurements.

The spherical angle is divided into K equal sectors. If the largest dimension of EUT is less than 60 cm, then each sector is a half quadrant of 45°.

For each peak emission frequency, measure peak EIRP of beams belonging to different sectors of the sphere as follows:

1. Move EUT and test antenna to the same position where the emission peak is recorded during the pre-scan.

2. Move EUT around the position and test antenna orientation to find the final peak EIRP.

3. Repeat Steps 1 to 2 until all sectors are covered.

4. Calculate TRPEstimate as:


where is the peak EIRP in the kth sector.

NOTE: Peak EIRP is the linear sum of two orthogonal polarised components.
