I'm playing with Antenna Toolbox, specifically trying to do some coverage maps with functions txsite, show, coverage etc. and I cannot find anywhere if it's possible in defining txsite object to use my own antenna, for which I have a measured 360° radiation antenna pattern in format of Gain/Phi/Theta values (either in E/H 2D slices, or even 3D pattern). Do you have any experience with it, please?
tx = txsite('Name','MathWorks Apple Hill',...
'Latitude',42.3001, ...
'Longitude',-71.3504, ...
'Antenna',MyOwnAntenna, ...)

The txsite and rxsite objects work with any antenna element or array objects from Antenna Toolbox or Phased Array System Toolbox. You can define a custom antenna using phased.CustomAntennaElement from Phased Array System Toolbox. An example that shows how to define a custom antenna for use with txsite is SINR Map for a 5G Urban Macro-Cell Test Environment.

Hi Jacob, is it possible to load a custom antenna pattern with the SINR Map example without using the Antenna or Phased Array System toolboxes?
