Link Budget Noise and Antenna Selection

Link Budget Noise and Antenna Selection

The Link Budget Noise and Antenna Selection video is up!

While this was supposed to be the video on the receive segment, but it became clear that we needed to cover the concepts of noise, sources, and the selection of the antenna type.  The receive segment video will happen next week.

This week’s transcript: AerospaceMakerNoiseandAntennas
