Receiver Spectrum

This plot was taken on November 4, 2005 using the system antenna. It shows the entire repeater band input spectrum between 902 and 903 MHz. The spectrum analyzer was set to max hold and was sampled over several minutes. While all the interference wasn't there constantly, the plot does give an indication of how much junk is flying through the receiver passband and how strong it is. The marker is at the N6EX receiver input frequency. This frequency was specifically chosen to minimize the impact of interference within the band.
