Abstract : Measurements were made of such operating parameters as; noise figure, sensitivity, selectivity, and desensitization. Based on the results of the evaluation, it was concluded that although the receiver provided an improvement in noise figure and sensitivity at the receiver midband frequency (127 mc), the unit as designed was unsuitable for FAA use due to its susceptibility to undesired responses, instability to provide required selectivity characteristics above the 60 db skirt. It was recommended that the Receiver not be adopted for FAA use.
