RF201: Module 6 – RF Systems Diagnostic Measurements

Instructional Method: Now Available ON DEMAND


This talk will focus on the means and methods for testing antenna systems and what the information/data means. With the repack in full swing, it is important for station engineers to have a good understanding of the test data they will receive on their new antenna systems plus existing systems should have a good base line data on hand for when problems arise. A brief discussion of the care and handling of tower contractors will also be covered.
