7- 8 GHz RRL equipment


The RRL equipment is intended for building a duplex RRL (reception/ transmission) including four channel
service link that is important for mobile TV stations. It can be powered by 12V source. Broadcast quality of
transmitted signals allows to use this equipment in radio and TV studios.Some modifications differing in
quantity of transmitted TV channels and Input signal format (CVBS or SDI) are available.
                                                                         Operation principle:
Input signals (video, audio and service) are fed to a modulator. The modulator/coder is a multifunction
device including converter of analog/ composite signals into digital format , then МРЕG2 coder , transport
stream multiplexer + QPSK modulator to 70MHz or satellite tuner IF of 950-2150MHz. The modulator output signal is fed to a transmitter which shifts the signal to operation frequency of 7-8GHz range. The exact value of the frequency and an output power (100 … 500 mW) is defined by a customer.The transmitter output is a waveguide flange or N-type connector or else the transmitter can be combined with antenna array of 26 dB gain in a monoblock. Receiving side equipment is a converter of 7-8GHz into satellite IF range signal. The converter is a block with waveguide or coaxial input or it can be combined with an antenna array in a monoblock. A digital DVB-S receiver can be used as a receiver/ When a lead-in cable length is rather long, IF can be of 70MHz or any other value. For converting IF of 70 MHz in satellite receiver range it is used an upconverter. A connection distance depends on parabolic antenna size and its quality (gain-to-noise-temperature). The transmitting and receiving antenna size is chosen when RRL project ready.
