modulation
modulation
The modulation of the microwave radio terminal must be considered. The repeater output power setting is determined by the terminal modulation. Normally, repeaters operate with one carrier per amplifier. Some repeater configurations operate with two carriers per amplifier and are so noted (1). Refer to tables 21a and 21b.
