This Folding Biconical antenna has a coaxial wound balun that can handle High fields of RF energy.
The SAS-544F Folding Biconical Antenna was the first EMC antenna designed for portable compliance testing applications. This Biconical Antenna is designed with a coaxial wound balun for increased power capability and intended for both transmitting and receiving high electromagnetic RF fields. For rapid deployment, along with the mobility of a small package, the Folding Biconical elements can be closed similar to an umbrella allowing the antenna to be contained in an optional transit storage case. Whether testing in a shielded enclosure, or outdoors, the rugged construction of the A.H. Systems Biconical antenna will ensure long life, and reliable performance.

The Biconical Antenna is considered a standard workhorse for every compliance test lab. Used in a variety of applications such as radiated emissions, immunity and shielding effectiveness testing; this application note will help guide the decision process of which Biconical Antenna to purchase.
Just as interference testing requires RF enclosures, isolation systems in turn need their own testing. This document reviews some of the issues and considerations in testing RF enclosures.
This article explains different power amplifier / antenna matching combinations for some new RF immunity standards. Though far from certain, it looks as if 6 GHz is a strong canidate for the upper frequency for consumer products.
