Poole hospital nhs foundation trust are inviting tenders to carry out installation of window filming to certain elevations to the main hospital blocks the requested criteria for window film is as follows: internally applied solar heat gain reduction - around 50% light transmission - around 60% suppliers are invited to propose window film types to meet (or exceed) the above criteria
The broadcaster can, if additional transmitter power is available, increase the TPO to overcome the main lobe gain reduction, or use Single Frequency Network (SFN) technology to enhance reception at the periphery of the service area.
These observations indicate that due to the variation of the slot's length, the phase difference between the two output ports of each power divider cannot provide the optimum value for circular polarization of the antenna element any more, which leads to the gain reduction of the array.
To minimize the gain reduction problems induced by the bond wires, a differential structure was adapted.
To increase the array bandwidth, "d" has to be decreased, which requires antenna miniaturization that usually results in bandwidth and gain reduction.
Under further analysis, computer simulation revealed a 17 percent solar heat gain reduction through proper orientation of the bed tower.

The combination of gain reduction and internal power dissipation results in a stable maximum junction temperature of approximately 140 degC.
Delivered with a fat-enriched meal, it showed a weight gain reduction of 22% compared with the control group (p=0.029), and a reduction of body mass (p=0.005).
Specifically, this representative house is a 2000 [ft.sup.2] (186 [m.sup.2]) (new construction) single-family residence with 300 [ft.sup.2] (28 [m.sup.2]) of windows distributed equally on all four orientations (i.e., 75 [ft.sup.2] (7 [m.sup.2]) of window area per exterior wall) and "typical" solar gain reduction (from RESFEN 3.1 [Mitchell et al.
Comparing class-A results with class-E with sinusoidal driving, a gain reduction of 8 dB is observed while the drain efficiency is doubled.
Figure 1 shows the P1dB power level with a 20% gain reduction, the P2dB point where the gain is compressed by 2 dB and down by approximately 36%, and the P3dB power where the gain is compressed by 3 dB, down by 50%.
