Abstract

Whenever a reliable radio communication sys- tem is required, it is important to be able to moni- tor the performance of all elements of the system, including the antennas and their feeders. For the transmitter, this may be easily accomplished by meas- uring the forward and reflected power to the trans- mitter antenna. However, for the receiver, there is no easy way of measuring the performance of the receiver without interrupting the communication.
