RF question - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

A television receiver tuned to a channel at 220 MHz comprises a front end
amplifier (G = 18 dB, F = 2.5 dB), mixer (G = 16 dB, F = 12 dB) and IF
amplifier (F = 2 dB, Bn = 6 MHz). It is connected to an antenna of gain 6 dB
via 15m of 300 ohm ribbon lead with an attenuation of 0.12 dB/m. Calculate
(a) The noise figure of the receiver.
(b) The signal (in mV) at the antenna terminals required to produce an
output signal to noise ratio of 40 dB for (i) a suburban area, (i) a
quiet semi-rural area.
(c) The corresponding electric field strength in the neighbourhood of
the antenna.
(d) The improvement in S/N (for both cases (i) and (ii) above) which
would result from
- replacing the ribbon cable with a polyfoam cable, attenuation
0.04 dB/m
- leaving the cable the same, but fitting another antenna with a
gain of 10 dB
- leaving the cable and antenna as originally and fitting a masthead
amplifier with F = 2 dB and G = 20 dB.
Assume in each case that the signal field strength is the same.


Anyone gives some hints for solving this question
thanks in advance.

Most tutors that help you with college homework problems get paid. What are you offering?

Start with the cascaded Noise Factor calculation...

Ftotal = 1 + F1 + F2/G1 + F3/(G1*G2) + F4/(G1*G2*G3) + ...
