• Measurement of the Impulsive Noise Environment for Satellite-Mobile Radio Systems at 1.5 GHz.

      Button, Mark D.; Gardiner, John G.; Glover, Ian A. (2002)
      Noise amplitude distribution measurements relevant to%satellite-mobile radio systems are reported. The rationale for the%measurements is outlined and the choice of measurement parameters%justified. The measurement equipment and measurement methodology are%described in detail. Results characterizing the elevation angle%distribution of impulsive noise are presented for rural, suburban and%urban environments and also for an arterial road (U.K. motorway)%carrying high density, fast moving traffic. Measurements of the levels%of impulsive noise to be expected in each environment for high- and%low-elevation satellite scenarios using appropriate antenna%configurations are also presented
