The impact of the channel with lower carrier noise ratios (CNR) on other channels is especially provided.
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.
The system controller then computes the carrier noise from the detector gain constant and the measured baseband data (Figure 2).
