Consider beam steer 1 when switch A is ON while the others are OFF; beam steer 2, switch B is ON while others are OFF; beam steer 3 when switch C is ON while others are OFF and beam steer 4 when switch D is ON while others are OFF.
For instance, Figure 11(a) shows the beam steer 1 with a gain of 2.
For the beam steer 2, the NLOS measurement at +15 degrees yields the best result.
On the other hand, Figure 11(c) shows that the measurement at 0[degrees] records better signal reception than the measurements of other angles, because the main beam is almost steered to 0 degrees where the measurement yields that the main beam direction for beam steer 3 is at -1 degree.
This improvement is achieved through Deltenna's patented antennas and alignment algorithms, which beam steer the device's receivers.
