Abstract:

This report describes a prototype broadband VHF ferrite isolator device that can be used to reduce transmitter intermodulation in air traffic control airground communication equipments. The isolator was developed for the Systems Research and Development Service through an Inter-Agency Agreement with the United States Air Force. The isolator was tested at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center and was found to reduce T-1108GRT-21 transmitter intermodulation approximately 30 dB. Test results fell short of design goals for weight, insertion loss, and intermodulation product reduction. Author
