Antenna Considerations For Controlling Cable System Leakage (1989)

By Ted J. Dudziak, PE , Project Engineering Manager, Wavetek RF Products

The success of a cable leakage maintenance program is keyed to the ability of the cable operator to monitor, categorize and locate leakage within the system. The antenna plays an important part of controlling cable leakage since system leakage exists outside the cable system. This paper reviews various antenna alternatives and suggests how they may be used in a leakage maintenance program. Several references are given so that the cable system technical personnel may further understand the considerations of antenna selection.
