    Much discussion has centered on the potential benefits of circularly polarized transmission of TV signals to the viewing public. One of these proposed benefits is the possibility of ghost reduction when both the transmitter and the receiver are equipped with CP antennas. While there has been much conjecture and a limited amount of testing, no definitive discussion has appeared on the conditions re... View full abstract»

    Gain is a vital characteristic of a broadcast TV antenna because of the direct relationship of antenna gain to the station's maximum effective radiated power, or ERP. This paper discusses the various parameters that may influence antenna gain, such as beam tilt, null fill and feed system efficiency. These and certain other factors must be taken into consideration in predicting the gain of a propos... View full abstract»

  • Statistical Reference Envelopes for Rain Crosspolarization At Hicher Frequencies for Use In Satellite System Design

    Dual polarization techniques are becoming more attractive in satellite communications because they permit more efficient utilization of the frequency spectrum. It is essential in designing such systems to reasonably estimate the level of rain crosspolarization, especially when higher frequencies are to be used to avoid crowding in the lower band. The correlation between rain crosspolarization and ... View full abstract»

    Most vertical antennas used in the AM standard broadcast band in the United States have extensive radial ground systems beneath them which serve as image planes. These same image planes can function as excellent ground systems for dissipating lightning discharges. When subjected to a lightning stroke, the "surge impedance" of a ground system is almost always lower than its measured resistance sinc... View full abstract»

  • Waveform Equalization of Video-Network Facilities

    The IEEE Standard 511 on linear waveform distortions shows us how to measure Field-time, Line-time and Short-time Waveform Distortions. In measuring these distortions no reference is made to the frequency response (both gain and phase) that causes these distortions. However, in the equalization system of video-network facilities the frequency response principle is still employed. View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The Society’s Field of Interest is “Devices, equipment, techniques and systems related to broadcast technology, including the production, distribution, transmission, and propagation aspects.” In addition to this formal FOI statement, which is used to provide guidance to the Publications Committee in the selection of content, the AdCom has further resolved that “broadcast systems includes all aspects of transmission, propagation, and reception.”
