Because of the circuit complexity, of a carrier source, especially at microwave frequencies, reliability relating to the carrier noise can be unpredictable over long time periods.
Simplified automated measurements include: Level, VSWR/Return Loss, Insertion Loss, Carrier Noise, Cable Fault, Field Strength and Bandwidth.
The system controller then computes the carrier noise from the detector gain constant and the measured baseband data (Figure 2).
