This paper presents a report on experimental set up and results for a hybrid free space optics (FSO)/radio frequency (RF) dual purpose antenna for outdoor applications. The basic design of the antenna is discussed and we present two sets of early experimental results for the signal to noise ratio (SNR) and the Q-factor for the RF and FSO simplex link at the far-field distance of RF antenna, respectively. Over a link span of 15 m the measured SNR and the Q-factor are 45.68 dB and 15.69, respectively, demonstrating the functioning transmission capability of the hybrid FSO/RF link employing the proposed antenna. © 2013 IEEE.
