    The classic technology of the saturable core may be combined with the microcomputer to yield an improved version of the magnetic flux-gate compass. General description and fundamental principles are discussed with application to mass-produced automobiles. A transfer function between the earth's magnetic field and the fluxgate output voltages is developed. The introduction of the microcomputer allo... View full abstract»

    A major concern in a cellular mobile radio system is the co-channel interference. Therefore, the reduction of co-channel interference becomes a main thrust for the system design engineers. We use the co-channel interference reduction factor as a design criterion and predict the signal-to-interference (S/I) ratios in different system configurations. The handoff mechanism and algorithmic considerati... View full abstract»

    Theoretical and experimental studies are made on radiation patterns of mobile antennas within the frequency range from 300 to 900 MHz. In order to calculate vertical plane patterns of quarter wavelength monopole and a half-wavelength dipole located on an automobile's roof, a theoretical model of an automobile body is developed, in conjunction with the geometrical theory of diffraction (GTD). The t... View full abstract»

    Pilot-based calibration techniques are used to reduce the effects of multipath fading in mobile satellite receivers. One of the more recent of these techniques, namely the tone calibration technique (TCT), suggests transmitting double sideband modulation with the pilot tone located at the center of its spectrum where the amplitude and phase characteristics of the channel are most stable. To "make ... View full abstract»
