Cumulative effect of radiated emissions from metallic data distribution systems on radio based services

A report for the Radiocommunications Agency by York EMC Services Ltd, University of York

Authors: Dr. D W Welsh, Dr. I D Flintoft, Dr. A D Papatsoris


Recent developments in broadband data access methods over existing telephone or mains wiring will cause unintentional RF emissions which may adversely affect the established radio noise floor. This report considers the effects due to cumulative propagation of many such sources on the established radio noise floor. It does not consider possible interference due to near field effects. The propagation mechanisms considered are groundwave and skywave. The figure shows the technologies, propagation methods and frequencies that have been considered.
