Radio Spectrum Monitoring Techniques and Procedures
This hands-on, five day, course is designed specifically for those who are, or who expect to be, working directly in the field of radio monitoring for a radio administration or regulatory agency. Participants will be instructed in the skills of radio monitoring methods as utilized within an administration's communications regulatory department or agency. It will focus on direction finding and monitoring methods that can be adapted to a broad range of equipment sophistication. Participants will work along-side enforcement staff at a field facility of the FCC. The course provides practical instruction in aspects of the facility's work including: radio direction finding, off-the-air technical measurements, signal identification, interference resolution and regulation compliance. On the final day of the course, the participants will receive a presentation given by Keysight Technologies, the world's leading electronic measurement company, on Spectrum Analyzers. A product demonstration will be provided to show new measurement capabilities.
To be able to: (1) operate radio monitoring equipment; (2) measure radio signal parameters; (3) use a variety of direction finding techniques; (4) identify radio emissions; (5) secure compliance with radio regulations; and (6) select optimum monitoring methods for local requirements.
