Abstract. In this paper the influence of the placement of calibration antennas of correlation and phase direction finder with paraboloid receiving antennas on deficiency of precision and intermediate scales of directionfinder is investigated. Possible way of placement of calibration antennas is proposed. It brings to decreasing of the deficiency of scales, and as a result to better disclosure of the variability of phase measurements.

Key words: direction finder, phase measurements, monitoring of spacecraft coordinates.
