The Effect of Shipborne Radars on the Aeronautical Radionavigation Service in the 9300–9320 MHz Band

Karl B. Nebbia

Abstract: The possibility of allowing shipborne navigation radars within the 9300–9320 MHz band is being considered within Study Group 8 of the International Radio Consultative Committee (CCIR) and within the United States preparation for the 1987 Mobile World Administrative Radio Conference. The impact this would have upon beacon systems used within the aeronautical radionavigation service is of concern. The report provides the background, equipment characteristics, and an analysis of the potential interaction between the shipborne radars and the aeronautical beacon systems.

Keywords: aeronautical radionavigation; aeronautical radionavigation beacons; maritime radionavigation; 9300-9320 MHz; Weather radars
