Report ID:

March 01, 1999
Abstract: 
The performance of the radios was evaluated using the SINAD histograms and by listening to the radio during the tests. Radios that had histograms which showed a distribution of SINAD measurements to higher values for a greater percentage of time performed better than those radios that had low SINAD values for higher percentages of time. Some radios performed better in Savannah than New Orleans.
