Abstract : The patent relates to a spectrum-shaped discriminating on/off target indicator which indicates if a signal simultaneously meets prescribed conditions on power level and spectrum shape. Signal power level and spectrum width are simultaneously measured and a DC logic output is obtained only for input signals which have a signal-to-noise ratio equal to, or higher than a preset minimum level though the signal 'noise bandwidth' meets the prescribed conditions.
