For dipole antennas in an array system, for any configuration of the dipoles, how does change angle of orientation in one or more of the dipoles affect the mutual coupling between them. Is there a formular for this?

    $\begingroup$ Are you asking about polarization (vertical vs horizontal for Tx and receive)? Pattern gain of beams on mis-aimed rotators? Or about angular spacing of fan dipole elements? Or something else. Etc. $\endgroup$ – hotpaw2 Jul 15 at 14:51

    $\begingroup$ Coupling in the near field, or the far field, or something else? $\endgroup$ – Phil Frost - W8II Jul 15 at 15:36

    $\begingroup$ And in what sense are the dipoles "opposite"? $\endgroup$ – Phil Frost - W8II Jul 15 at 15:36

    $\begingroup$ @PhilFrost-W8II Could you comment on the choice of duplicate here? The answer there doesn't seem to address this question at all — there is no mention of angle. Duplicates should usually be more “exact” than this. But perhaps I'm missing some key antenna theory fact, or that answer could trivially be expanded to explicitly address this. $\endgroup$ – Kevin Reid AG6YO Jul 16 at 22:14

    $\begingroup$ Yeah I wouldn't call it a duplicate, but it does need more detail. @KevinReidAG6YO $\endgroup$ – Phil Frost - W8II Jul 17 at 1:18
