Abstract : Test and experimentation were conducted on an engineering model microwave relay remoting system at NAFEC to obtain data to finalize the system design requirements. Measurements and calculations for received signal levels, fade margins, signal plus noise-to-noise ratio, noise figure and others were obtained. Measured values of the signal levels for a dish-to-dish antenna configuration were in agreement with the theoretical values, whereas the measured values for the periscope antenna configuration used showed a 5 dB discrepancy to the predicted values. An analysis of this discrepancy is covered in the report. In general, the microwave receiver and transmitter characteristics met the equipment procurement specifications. (Author)
