dB Calculator
() + dB) = ()
 
Enter the number of watts or dB and the amount of dB to add or subtract. The result will be displayed on the right side of the equation. After entering a value, tab (or click) and the calculation will occur.

 

VSWR & Return Loss Calculator
VSWR: :1 Return Loss: dB Through Loss :dB
Enter either the VSWR ratio or the Return Loss and the other will be calculated. Through loss is a calculated field only. The calculation will occur when you either tab off the field or click the form.

Coupler Calculator
Coupling Loss : Through Loss :
Enter either the Coupling Loss or the Through Loss and the other will be calculated. The calculation will occur when you either tab off the field or click the form.

Eb/No (brutto bitrate)

Brutto Bitrate = 2 [bit/symbol] *Symbolrate[Msymbols/S]

Set FEC before datarate is set if you want to use datarate instead of symbolrate as input.
