This paper describes a series of experiments designed to examine the antenna characteristics of probes which are used as detectors in ion-acoustic wave experiments. Reception patterns are measured which are in qualitative agreement with theoretical predictions. The near-field antenna pattern of the wave-launching grid is found to be important.
