    The power spectral analysis of very high frequency (VHF) communication radios is important to understanding how they affect each other and how they affect VHF surveillance radios. In this paper, we propose an analytical method for lower-bound radio frequency (RF) power spectrum estimation with the consideration of both power amplifier nonlinearity and broadband noise. We then demonstrate how to ap... View full abstract»
