The accuracy of near-field antenna measurements combined with near-field far-field transformations (NFFFT) is deteriorated if objects are located in close vicinity to the antenna under test (AUT). We compare two equivalent sources based modeling techniques to suppress the influence of structures in the vicinity of the AUT. Simulation results for perfect electrically conducting objects showcase the capabilities and limitations of both approaches. The presented methods can easily extend existing NFFFTs in order to remove the influence of mounting structures or parts of the positioning system in anechoic near-field measurement facilities.
