The modern digital, web-based life makes technical work so much easier. Pasternak Enterprises has posted on their website useful calculation and conversion tools.
Numbering a whopping 27, Pasternak says its RF calculator and conversion tools were developed by its engineering staff. Here’s some of what’s available that might interest broadcast engineers: antenna downtilt calculator, balanced attenuator calculator, cascaded noise figure calculator, coaxial cable impedance calculator, RF power conversion calculator, RF power ratio conversion calculator, VSWR/return loss calculator and more.
Pasternak, “Each calculator page includes a diagram or illustrated depiction of what the calculator is used for as well as the mathematical formula for the chosen calculator.”
It’s a page you’ll bookmark.
