1 - 2 weeks availability


This practical DVD and spiral-bound package gives antenna ground station engineers the tools they need to measure and analyze the performance of low noise receiving systems. The book explains the parameters, describes how they define the elements of the receiving system, and how key measurements are to be made. Practitioners learn how to carry out measurements in a step-by-step manner that simplifies each procedure. Moreover, this unique volume provides examples from real-world stations and also serves as a user's manual to the accompanying software. The DVD contains equations that are programmed into software that takes raw data as inputs and delivers important statistics for accurate performance analysis.
