New communication services, an increasing number of subscribers and terminals and the unabated demand for greater bandwidth result in an increasingly dense occupancy of the radio spectrum. A challenge, which equally affects civil regulatory authorities, military and commercial network operators. The first step to meet this challenge is an efficient monitoring of the radio spectrum.

This seminar introduces the participants to the basics of radio monitoring and explains in detail the functions and applications of a modern radio monitoring receiver. Practical exercises on all important measurement tasks enhance the knowledge. Thus, the participant learns the operation and efficient handling of the receiver.
