hi, i have no idea of fabricating antenna. if i have substrat, SMA then how can i fabricate a planar antenna ? that is how can i made copper pattern printing on substrate? i have no factories around me that can fabricate antenna so i want to fabricate it for myself.
secondly for measurements i need to buy far filed probes OF MY WORKING FREQUENCY for VNA?

What frequency are you working with? Have you tried cutting out your pattern in copper foil and glueing it to your back plane??

At L-Band? Those aren't going to be cheap. Hope you have a sizeable budget. You also won't get a very accurate result without some type of absorber. Remember that at L-band, the far-field distance is fairly large.
