In this video Stephen Pavlik walks me through how to create a link budget to find out if my wireless microphone system will work…or why it didn’t work.
There is no single point solution.
Every point in the RF signal chain can either attenuate or amplify the signal. If it goes too low, we get dropouts. If it goes too high, we get overloads. Through maximizing efficiency at every point, we can avoid dropouts and quickly troubleshoot interference.
Don’t be intimidated! There is no difficult math. The only challenge is researching the loss or gain of each piece of equipment in your signal chain.
