This is a two-day course.

This course will provide a background in the frequency spectrum and RF technology and review causes and sources of interference. Spectrum analyzers will be covered in detail along with software functions and tools to support interference hunting. Many interference hunting cases will be presented. Students will have hands-on time with a variety of modern commercial spectrum analyzers. A "Tiny SA" spectrum analyzer will be given to the students for use during the labs. The content will include:

  • Basic RF Signal Theory
  • Frequency Spectrum
  • Decibels
  • Unlicensed vs. Licensed
  • Modulation
  • Radio Propagation
  • What is interference?
  • Sources of Interference
  • Interference Examples
  • Antennas
  • Spectrum Analyzers
  • Key specifications
  • Real Time vs. Swept
  • Spectrum Analyzer Measurements
  • Interference Hunting Tools
  • Field Measurements
