Abstract:
Rapid growth and modernization of microwave communications is currently taking place in both the commercial and military environments. Much of this growth is being accomplished through digital transmission, and calls for efficient utilization of frequency spectra allocated for LOS communications. As the bit efficiencies and data rates of digital radio systems have increased, the problems associated with multipath propagation phenomena have become more evident. This is due to the fact that the transmitter signal is randomized before transmission and the system behaves as though it has full loading at all times. To minimize outages and to meet path availability objectives, diversity protection alone, in many instances, is not sufficient. However, diversity protection, coupled with an acaptive equalizer, will meet the objective in all but a few severe cases. This paper describes a digital radio system operating in the 8 GHz band with 8 PSK modulation and nominal data rates of 45 Mb/s or 90 Mb/s. Multipath propagation and its effects on digital transmission are discussed. Improvements in bit error rate threshold obtained through the use of an adaptive equalizer designed into the receiver are also presented.
