Design of a 12 Channel FM Microwave Receiver.
Risch, Craig O.; And Others
The design, fabrication, and performance of elements of a low cost FM microwave satellite ground station receiver are described. It is capable of accepting 12 contiguous color television equivalent bandwidth channels in the 11.72 to 12.2 GHz band. Each channel is 40 MHz wide and incorporates a 4MHz guard band. The modulation format is wideband FM, and the channels are frequency division multiplexed. Twelve independent CATV compatible baseband outputs are provided. The overall system specifications are first discussed, then consideration is given to the receiver subsystems and the signal branching network. (Author/WCM)
