Passive Intermodulation

Passive intermodulation is one of the greatest challenges in today's mobile communication systems. Passive intermodulation arises due the signal degradation effects of passive elements within the transmission system. An incorrectly torqued connection, poorly maintained equipment, minor damage to an antenna or even
