A method is presented for the simultaneous measurement of the absolute gain of antennas in solution and the dielectric properties of the solution. The principle and formulation are based on a modified Friis transmission formula. This three-antenna method is applied to gain measurement of printed dipole antennas in solution, and demonstrated through comparison with calculated results to be an accurate method for the measurement of both antenna gain and solution dielectric properties.
