    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

TMA-MHA tetra - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Where should the values lie? Parameter for the good RX/TX
TMA. RX 380-385, TX 390-395

RX Rejection
TX Rejection
Time Delay
Ripple in Rx-band
Gain variation over temperature
Duplexer 70dB for 5MhZ is okay?
Bandpass Ripple
Speed max 350kmh

Tetra 380MHz (25kHz), Power Handling max. 8x45dBm, Gain 15-20dB, BTS Sensity static -119dBm, Mine english is very bad, apology.

Hi Tomsk

Check out specs for eqipment by Tait (of New Zealand), Motorola (who now no longer supply to Europe due to RoHS) and Nokia/EADS

Looking at your list, a main concern would be IP3 products for 8 channels running 45dBm Tx output one one mast. Check out these combos by going thru all possible 2*F2-F1 combinations looking for any IP3 products that fall in the receive part of the band.

Other parameters should drop out of manufacturers specs

That is not exactly the point, I knows (has) manufacturers of values, and I must have a good TMA. Therefore where the parameters are to lie in sentence by sentence? Me would help also the parameters of Motorola or R&S TMA.

would it be better if one by means of the LPZ470 (http://www.profilant.net/uk/combiner/12070500) everything cuts off upward? thank you

You need to consult the TETRA Specifications published by ETSI
They are complicated but contain all the details you requested.
