    This paper considers the application of satellite relay techniques to provide communication paths for aircraft-ground communication over the ocean. It considers the feasibility of a communication system design for air traffic control (ATC) utilizing the reflex repeater as the basic satellite-borne relay device. Implementation of satellite relay techniques would permit continuous line-of-sight oper... View full abstract»

    Signal fading at 836 Mc on a mobile radio transmission path using directional antennas on the mobile unit was investigated and compared with that from an omnidirectional antenna. A marked reduction in fading rate was observed with the directional antenna. Increasing the directivity decreased the fading rate. The average propagation loss was also measured for the various antennas over the two-mile ... View full abstract»

    Propagation experiments were run at 836 Mc between a fixed omnidirectional base station and a mobile station using a directional antenna. On typical residential streets it was found that the antenna orientation had only a small effect on the average signal level and that the fading rate was significantly reduced. It was also discovered that the fading rate expressed as a function of antenna direct... View full abstract»

    The design principles, construction, and performance of a ten-foot whip antenna for use with radio communication sets covering the frequency range from 30 to 76 MHz are described. The antenna is insensitive to changes in environment, with respect to electrical performance. It has uniform azimuthal distribution of radiation, optimum gain at the horizon, and is suited as an element of antenna arrays... View full abstract»

    An experimental investigation was conducted to determine whether the degradation in electrical performance commonly observed with reduced-height helical-wound vertical dipoles can be avoided. A new design approach has been explored which helped define a major cause of this degradation. Data obtained during this investigation supports a working hypothesis that losses associated with circulating cur... View full abstract»

  • An experimental UHF dual-diversity receiver using a pre-detection combining system

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):41 - 47

    The use of diversity reception has often been suggested as a means of overcoming multipath fading in mobile radio propagation, and various combining schemes have been used. An experimental 836 MHz dual channel, space diversity receiver has been built which brings to a common phase and combines two independent signals using a scheme of phase equalizing by multiple heterodyning. This paper describes... View full abstract»

  • A new technique for measuring mobile transmitter noise spectra

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):48 - 56
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2009 KB)

    No reliable method of measuring absolute levels of noise close to the carrier of present day mobile radio transmitters has been available. The difficulty has been the large difference in levels of the carrier and noise. A new technique for measuring absolute noise power spectra near an unmodulated transmitter carrier has been developed. This technique depends on cancellation of the coherent carrie... View full abstract»

  • Vehicular interference radiation measurement technique

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):57 - 65
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (470 KB)

    The technique described in this paper is classed as a near-field method wherein the measuring probe is located less than 5-feet from the interference energy source. It provides a means for expressing the magnitude of the interference energy in quantitative terms which are independent of the receiver and antenna characteristics as well as the propagation anomalies experienced in the field intensity...
