Interference hunting in cities: Choose angle of arrival over power

Interference hunting in cities: Choose angle of arrival over power

October 24, 2018 | by Jeremy Carpenter

The urban RF environment is very demanding – densely packed with a myriad of cellular and non-cellular transmitters, interfering emitters, and inconveniently located building. This post explains why it pays to focus on the angle of arrival (AOA) method regarding speed, accuracy, and effectiveness when hunting interference in urban areas.
