Dear ARTS team,

After playing around with a 1d Gaussian antenna response (using the workspace 
variable ‘AntennaConstantGaussian1D’), I now want to set a custom antenna 
pattern from actual lab measurements.

I have vectors for the zenith and azimuth angles, as well as a grid of 
normalized antenna responses for each Stokes vector element. The normalization 
follows the ARTS behavior, where the integral of the responses over all angle 
increments is 1.

Can you guys help me out with correctly using that info in ARTS? I briefly 
looked at creating a workspace variable named ‘antenna_response’ with 
‘GriddedField4’, but somehow the format confuses me. Also, I am pretty sure 
that this is not enough and there probably are more steps I need to take for 
ARTS to accept that variable as the antenna pattern.

Thanks for your help and best wishes,
