Nonlinear Behavior of the Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) Sources at Faculty of Applied Sciences, MARA University of Technology

Abstract:

In this article, we describe and compare several sources of the nonlinear of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) based on classification methods. It is very important to characterize and understand the nature of interference in as much of the candidate spectrum as possible. Preliminary analysis has been done in 2011. As data sizes of observations grow with new and improved solar monitoring system, the need for completely automated, robust methods for RFI mitigation is highlighted. The current status of RFI noise level is being compared at two different sites (i) indoor and (ii) outdoor. The main objective is to evaluate and find the best range of low frequency in MHz for the solar monitoring purpose. Our findings are consistent with those of previous studies. There is not much different in terms of the sources of RFI. However, the level of RFI is become increase. Based on the results, it was found that the distribution of RFI sources in indoor site is in the range from -(80-105) dBm. A strong and moderate RFI can be identified in the range of -100 dBm. The dominant sources in this region are due to the fixed mobile signal with 10 points of this signal from 1-2000 MHz. If we compare with outdoor site, the distribution of RFI sources in indoor site is in the range from -(75-105) dBm. It means that the signal of noise is larger compared with indoor site. While new sources strive to remain the increasing of RFI signal levels, numerous factors interact to influence the pattern of this noise. Reporting to the authoritative body should be made to make sure the allocation of the solar monitoring frequency region was not used by other applications. This work is a current scenario of the nonlinear RFI level at our site.
