Interference hunting with a test receiver and a directional antenna

Short designation: TR308-7E Radio Monitoring

New communications 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. In a densely occupied spectrum, there is a growing risk of mutual interference. This presents a challenge that affects civil regulatory authorities, military organizations and commercial network operators alike.

We can detect and localize sources of interference that disrupt radio services and mobile networks from their electromagnetic radiation. In this seminar, participants will be taught how to localize a hidden source of electromagnetic radiation using a test receiver and a directional antenna. The seminar explains in detail the functions and applications of portable radiomonitoring receivers and handheld directional antennas. Through practical exercises to enhance the conveyed knowledge, participants will learn how to operate and efficiently handle the receiver and antenna.
