Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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
