Abstract:

A broadband radiator was developed which provides a near-uniform radio interference field for electronic equipment susceptibility tests in the frequency range of 0.15 to 1000 mc. This radiator is intended for use in a shiel ed enclosure in conjunction with the ANGRM-8 XA-1 radio interference generator set, which generates a noise signal with a continuous pulse spectrum over the frequency range of 0.10 to 1000 mc. The broadband radiator requires no manual change to provide simultaneous operation at all frequencies between 0.15 and 1000 mc. Measurements in this frequency range were previously conducted utilizing various loop, stub, and dipole radiators requiring numerous adjustments during a single qualification test. Design con iderations, technical achievements, and experimental results are presented. Eight broadband radiators were constructed. Author
