7.9 Spurious emissions from the receiver antenna connector

11.213GPPBase Station System (BSS) equipment specificationRadio aspectsRelease 1999TS

7.9.1 Test Purpose

Spurious emissions are emissions at frequencies other than those of the BTS transmitter ARFCNs and adjacent frequencies. This test measures spurious emissions from the BTS receiver antenna connector.

7.9.2 Test Case

The transmitter shall be configured with one TRX active. It shall be allocated to RF Channel M and shall transmit at full power on all time slots.

For a BTS equipped with diversity, the requirements of this subclause apply to each receiver dedicated antenna connector.

For a BTS equipped with a duplexer or duplexers, the requirements of subclause 6.6 apply to any antenna connector which is a port for both transmitter(s) and receiver(s). Therefore, this test need not be performed on these ports.

The receiver antenna connector shall be connected to a spectrum analyser or selective voltmeter with the same characteristic impedance.

The detecting device shall be configured as defined in table 26. Peak hold shall be enabled, and the video bandwidth shall be approximately three times the resolution bandwidth. If this bandwidth is not available on the detecting device, it shall be the maximum available, and at least 1 MHz.

The power shall be measured over the frequency ranges specified in table 26.
