Rohde & Schwarz has developed a unique method that accurately measures group delay and phase linearity on satellite links. With the new R&S ZVA-K10 software option, users can perform measurements using two network analyzers located at separate sites. In open-area tests, for example, the analyzers can bridge long distances between a transmitter and a receiver.LISTED UNDER: Test and Measurement, Analyzers, Spectrum | Receivers, Other
