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
