TEST PLAN FOR EXPERIMENTAL MEASUREMENTS OF RADIO NOISE AND ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE AT LOGAN AND BURLINGTON AIRPORTS

A test plan is designed to: evaluate the performance of several types of LORAN-C receivers in the vicinity of both a large metropolitan and a small rural airport; measure the electromagnetic interference in the LORAN-C band (100 + or - 50 KHZ) at various locations likely to produce radio noise; and determine the amplitude, frequency and modulation of all significant interfering signals in the LORAN-C band using as primary measurement equipment, a calibrated antenna system and a spectrum analyzer.
