The resonant apertures are in the form of sqares with rounded corners. Feed stubs 55 and 56 are arranged between the apertured plates and project into the region between the apertures to excite orthogonally polarized modes. The feed stubs are in the form of strips which are aligned in planes perpendicular to the planes of the apertured plates. An exemplary embodiment has a bandwidth of 1700 MHz to 3300 MHz, containing the bands used for GSM 1800, UMTS, UMTS+, Bluetooth and WLAN systems. The feed is high-impedance and the decoupling better than -11dB over the whole frequency bandwidth.},

The method comprises stabilizing an active feedback to provide a variable feedback in a filter, varying the active feedback based on an input signal to the filter, and producing a desired Q-factor for the filter at a first frequency band, in response to the variable feedback. The method further comprises reconfiguring a center frequency and a bandwidth of the filter based on a channel bandwidth of the input signal to the filter to adjust the Q-factor for the filter in response to a second frequency band different than the first frequency band. By reconfiguring a center frequency and a bandwidth of a filter, the Q-factor for the filter, such as a flexible or reconfigurable filter, may be controlled across a multiplicity of frequency band signals. Using software, for example, a common signal path may be provided for the multiplicity of frequency band signals within a frequency agile radio...},

    abstract  = {The present invention provides a method and an apparatus for reducing radio frequency noise within a duplex communication system. The method comprises sensing a radio frequency transmit signal capable of operating a power amplifier that is capable of operation at a microwave transmit frequency and using a filter to cause an asymmetric notch in a noise power density spectrum in a radio frequency output signal to shape the noise power density spectrum at a low radio frequency power level in the microwave transmit frequency in response to the radio frequency transmit signal. In a base station, a duplex filter arrangement may trim the wideband noise within a power amplifier, such as a Class-S power amplifier. An increased filtering effort may be spend at a low power level at a power amplifier input. A desired noise shaping may be applied in the power amplifier to prevent desensitization of a receiver of a base station by the wideband noise at one or more receive frequencies for a digital cellular network in a telecommunication system. Use of a noise shaping filter with an asymmetric shape response may attenuate noise on a lower side of a transmit frequency and increase the noise on a higher side of the transmit frequency. A shift of the noise power to desired frequency regions, enables the base station to tolerate relatively more noise at higher frequencies than in a receive band, at frequencies that are lower than a transmit band. As a result, a Class-S power amplifier may provide both high linearity and efficiency.},

DOLLAR A Lösung des Problems bzw. der technischen Aufgabe DOLLAR A Durch die Vorprägung der Richtcharakteristik der seriell gespeisten Elemente einer Spalte wird die starke Neigung in Elevationsrichtung vermieden. Die Anpassung an den Azimutwinkel erfolgt durch Phasengewichtung der Signale der Spalten. Die Anpassung der Polarisation erfolgt durch Überlagerung orthogonal polarisierter Anteile benachbarter Spalten. Hierdurch wirken sich die Phasengewichte der Spaltensignale sowohl auf die Richtcharakteristik als auch auf die vom Einfallswinkel abhängige Polarisation aus.
