This paper presents a measuring concept for characterization of the electromagnetic fields near to wind energy converting systems (WECS) using a flying measuring platform (FMP). The FMP is based on an octocopter which includes a signal digitizer board and a receiver front end. The design and the realization of the receiver front end are described in this work. The main goal of the design is compact and lightweight equipment, which can be mounted on the FMP. The FMP can be started at any position with respect to the wind farm and climb to an altitude up to 500 meters. Furthermore, the developed receiver front end shows high performance in terms of dynamic range and selectivity.
