Abstract : A waveform capable of jamming some or all of the channels of a multiple channel receiver is developed by a multi-tone jammer that uses a digital counter and a digital/analog converter to generate a ramp voltage for a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). The output of the VCO is modulated by a pin diode attenuator. The attenuator is controlled by a pattern generator synchronized with the digital counter to blank the retrace and any portion of the sweep to provide a partial band tone jamming spectrum. The digital counter is driven by a MHz reference signal generator and the sweep repetition rate is greater than the circuit bandwidth. (Author)
