AR5000 - Technical aspects

Here I will describe some technical specifications of the AR5000. This is necessary to understand the results of a monitoring session.

Recording of rf-signals will be influenced by a couple of interconnections: The Automatic Gain Control (AGC)-characteristic curve significantly affects ratio and linearity of observed data. The selected if-bandwidth determines the frequency resolution and thereby the sharpness and height of the logged rf-signals. At least the course of the spectral responsivity needs to be flat to avoid any shift in the received data at different frequencies. Read more:
