A procedure is described for aligning transmitting and receiving antennas in a communications link with a minimum number of positionings of the antennas. A statistical formalization of the interpretation of the received signal levels permits that combination of receiving and transmitting antenna orientations to be chosen which most probably represents the aligned combination. A criterion is also developed for estimating the goodness of the alignment.
