Im trying to measure the gain of a lot of unknown portable and mobile antennas.  I have a 8720, 8753 & 8714 analyzers to use, normally i make S11 return loss and smith chart measurements for cable assemblies.
Now i trying to measure these antennas & have been using the same setup but im not sure what i should be looking for, is there a conversion
from Rl dB to gain in dBi or db?
