Abstract: This paper presents spectrum occupancy results from spectrum surveys conducted at three locations: Denver, CO; Table Mountain near Boulder, CO; and Point Loma, near San Diego, CA. Equipment setups are described along with the measurement algorithms used to measure various emission types. Various statistical graphs, M4 statistics plots and FS-CCDF plots, as well as time vs. frequency or waterfall plots give different representations of the data. Results are shown for a land-mobile radio band and a radar band. Five bands in total will be shown during the presentation.
