Synopses & Reviews
Since January of 1993, specific tests have been mandated by the FCC to maintain minimum quality levels. This practical, easy-to-read handbook helps cable television technicians and engineers keep up with system growth and technology advances by explaining how cable operators should make the tests required to comply with the new FCC 76.605 regulations, and by providing a complete introduction to the optimum use of spectrum analyzers. Updated to include the new FCC 76.605 regulations. Covers TV signal and CATV distribution; measurement parameters; test instrumentation; performance measurements with signal analysis; noise measurements with the spectrum analyzer; antennas for radiation measurements; and AC power supplies for field testing. For all engineers and technicians in the Cable Television industry responsible for maintaining and conducting tests of systems. Previously announced in the 9/94 PTR Catalog.
