More and more devices and subscribers, new radio services, and unfettered demand for more and more bandwidth are leading to increasingly dense occupancy of the radio spectrum. The risk of mutual interference rises in a densely occupied spectrum. This challenge impacts civil regulatory authorities, the military and commercial network operators alike. Interference sources that impair radio services and mobile networks can be localized using their electromagnetic radiation. In this seminar the participants learn how to track down concealed sources of electromagnetic radiation using a test receiver and a directional antenna. The operation and application of portable radiomonitoring receivers and directional antennas are described in detail. Practical exercises augment the conveyed knowledge. In this way, the participants learn how to effectively use and handle receivers and directional antennas.
