Measurements of the impulsive noise environment for satellite-mobile radio systems at 1.5 GHz

Button, M. and Gardiner, J. and Glover, I.A. (2002) Measurements of the impulsive noise environment for satellite-mobile radio systems at 1.5 GHz. IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, 51 (3). pp. 551-560. ISSN 0018-9545

Abstract

Noise amplitude distribution measurements relevant to satellite-mobile radio systems are reported. The rationale for the measurements is outlined and the choice of measurement parameters justified. The measurement equipment and measurement methodology are described in detail. Results characterizing the elevation angle distribution of impulsive noise are presented for rural, suburban and urban environments and also for an arterial road (U.K. motorway) carrying high density, fast moving traffic. Measurements of the levels of impulsive noise to be expected in each environment for high- and low-elevation satellite scenarios using appropriate antenna configurations are also presented
