Practical Applications of Spectrum Management and Spectrum Monitoring
Course participants will receive training at TCI International, Inc. (an SPX Company) corporate headquarters in Fremont, CA. The course focuses on the practical application of ITU-compliant spectrum management and monitoring techniques and the modern day challenges associated with both, including licensing tools, propagation analysis tools, radio direction finding and signal measurements for fixed, mobile and transportable applications. The course employs classroom and hands-on activities to provide students with a practical overview of spectrum management and monitoring techniques and their interaction. Classroom time is used to instruct in system planning and coverage analysis, the principles of propagation analysis, operational principles of a monitoring station, principles of signal measurements, radio direction finding, signal identification and recording, and RF drone detection techniques. The hands-on portion of the course will demonstrate real time application of the principles taught in the classroom and include mission planning, operational set-up, running missions, and data analysis.
