4 Test conditions
4.1 General

For the purposes of the present document, the test conditions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4 shall apply as

appropriate. Further product related test conditions for amateur radio and ancillary equipment are specified in the

present document.

For emission and immunity tests, the test modulation, test arrangements, etc., as specified in the present document,

clauses 4.1 to 4.5 of the present documment shall apply.
The general test conditions for amateur radio equipment are as follows:

• transmitters and amplifiers shall be tested in stand-by (if applicable) and in transmit mode of operation;

• transceivers and transverters shall be tested in receive, stand-by, and transmit mode of operation;

• if integral antenna equipment provides an internal antenna connector for testing purposes, then the tests can be

made via that connector.

The manufacturer shall recommend a power supply (e.g. an AC/DC power adapter) for use in conjunction with the

equipment under test (EUT), to ensure satisfactory operation of the combination during the EMC tests. When a range of

different types of power supply units can be used with several types of that manufacturer's radio equipment, then each

type of power supply unit shall be tested with the radio providing the highest RF output Peak Envelope Power (PEP).

These power supply units shall then be listed as preferred items for future generations of that manufacturer's radio

equipment.

The EMC tests shall be performed with the EUT set to the following operation frequencies:

• ingle-band equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set to the centre of the operation frequency band;

• double-band equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of each operation frequency band;

• HF multiband equipment or VHF/UHF multiband equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of the lowest, middle, and highest HF

operation frequency band;
• HF/VHF, HF/UHF or HF/VHF/UHF combined equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of the lowest HF band, the middle HF

band, the highest HF band, the lowest VHF/UHF band, the middle VHF/UHF band, and the centre of the

highest VHF/UHF band.
4.2 Arrangements for test signals
4.2.1 Arrangements for test signals at the input of transmitters

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.1 shall apply with the following modifications.

If possible, the transmitter should be modulated with a suitable signal, from an internal or external signal source. If it is

not appropriate to get a modulated RF signal from the transmitter, then the tests may be performed using its

unmodulated carrier.

It shall be possible to verify that a communications link is established and maintained.

ETSI
---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
9 ETSI EN 301 489-15 V2.2.1 (2019-04)
4.2.2 Arrangements for test signals at the output of transmitters

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.2 shall apply with the following modifications.

The transmitter under test shall be modulated such that the maximum PEP output is achieved, either by single or

multiple tones, or by a suitable bit stream, or in case of transmitters for other than analogue voice or data transmission,

by a test modulation representative of normal use (see also clause 4.5). The manufacturer shall declare the normal test

modulation.

Where thermal limitations prevent continuous transmission under such conditions, the tests may be performed using

gated methods. Under these circumstances, the test method used shall be recorded in the test report.

4.2.3 Arrangements for test signals at the input of receivers

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.3 shall apply with the following modifications.

The receiver shall be provided with a wanted RF input signal chosen according to clause 4.2.3 of ETSI

EN 301 489-1 [1] set to its operation frequency, and modulated with a suitable modulation signal fitting the

communication system characteristics (see clause 4.5.2). If it is not appropriate to provide the receiver with a modulated

wanted RF input signal, the test may be performed using an unmodulated wanted RF input signal.

If possible, the wanted RF input signal to establish a communications link shall be presented to the antenna connector

by a coaxial cable. The wanted RF input signal shall be set to a nominal value of 60 dB (or a lower value as declared by

the manufacturer) above the maximum usable sensitivity of the EUT, as declared by the manufacturer in the product

documentation.

It shall be possible to verify that a communications link is established and maintained.

4.2.4 Arrangements for test signals at the output of receivers
The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.4 shall apply.
4.2.5 Arrangements for testing transmitter and receiver together
(as a system)

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.5 shall apply with the following modification.

These arrangements are only applicable for duplex transceivers. The wanted RF input signal, coupled to the receiver,

shall be modulated with a suitable test signal (see clause 4.5.3). The transmitter shall be operated at its maximum PEP

RF output, modulated with the test signal, coupled to the transmitter from the output of the receiver (repeater mode).

4.3 RF exclusion band of radio communications equipment
4.3.1 Exclusion band for receivers or the receiver part of transceivers

The exclusion band for a receiver and the receiver part of a transceiver is determined by the characteristics of the

equipment.

For receivers operating on a fixed single frequency, the exclusion band extends from -5 % to +5 % of that fixed single

operation frequency.

For receivers operating or capable of operating, on a number of spot frequencies in a narrow operating frequency band

which is less than 20 % of the centre frequency of the operating band, the exclusion band extends from -5 % of the

lowest frequency of the narrow operating frequency band to +5 % of the highest frequency of that band.

For receivers operating, or capable of operating on a number of spot frequencies over a wide frequency band, the

exclusion band for each of the wanted RF signal test frequencies shall extend from -5 % to +5 % of each wanted RF

signal test frequency.
ETSI
---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
10 ETSI EN 301 489-15 V2.2.1 (2019-04)

NOTE: The exclusion bands are derived using different methodologies from those described in clause 4.3.3 of

ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]. However, the used methodologies lead to narrow exclusion bands for every

amateur radio frequency band .The parameter n in the formulas derived in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]

calculates in any case smaller than 1.
4.3.2 Exclusion band for transmitters or the transmitter part of transceivers
4.3.2.1 Exclusion band for EMC emission measurements

For EMC emission measurements, the exclusion band for transmitters shall be determined considering the class of

emission characteristics of the EUT. For EMC emission measurement purposes, the bandwidth of the exclusion band

shall additionally allow for the skirt bandwidth (Fb) of the measuring instrumentation, as shown in table 1.

Table 1: Transmitter exclusion band for emissions
Necessary bandwidth of emission Exclusion band Centre of the exclusion band
Fn < 0,05 Fc 3 Fn + Fb Fc
Fn > 0,05 Fc 1,1 Fn + Fb Fc
Where:

• Fn = necessary bandwidth of the wanted class of emission as defined in ITU Radio Regulations [i.3],

clause 1.152;
• Fb = 200 kHz in the frequency range below 30 MHz;
• Fb = 2 MHz in the frequency range above 30 MHz;
• Fc = centre frequency of the transmitter necessary bandwidth.
4.3.2.2 Exclusion band for immunity tests

For immunity tests, the exclusion band for transmitters extends plus and minus twice the maximum occupied bandwidth

allowed for the type of service for which the equipment is intended to operate, centred around the occupied bandwidth.

NOTE: The exclusion bands are derived using different methodologies from those described in clause 4.3.2 of

ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]. However, the used methodologies lead to narrower exclusion bands for every

amateur radio frequency band.
4.4 Narrowband responses of receivers or receivers which are

ETSI ETSI EN 301 489-15 V2.2.1 (2019-04)8 4 Test conditions 4.1 General For the purposes of the present document, the test conditions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4 shall apply as appropriate. Further product related test conditions for amateur radio and ancillary equipment are specified in the present document. For emission and immunity tests, the test modulation, test arrangements, etc., as specified in the present document, clauses 4.1 to 4.5 of the present documment shall apply. The general test conditions for amateur radio equipment are as follows: • transmitters and amplifiers shall be tested in stand-by (if applicable) and in transmit mode of operation; • transceivers and transverters shall be tested in receive, stand-by, and transmit mode of operation; • if integral antenna equipment provides an internal antenna connector for testing purposes, then the tests can be made via that connector. The manufacturer shall recommend a power supply (e.g. an AC/DC power adapter) for use in conjunction with the equipment under test (EUT), to ensure satisfactory operation of the combination during the EMC tests. When a range of different types of power supply units can be used with several types of that manufacturer's radio equipment, then each type of power supply unit shall be tested with the radio providing the highest RF output Peak Envelope Power (PEP). These power supply units shall then be listed as preferred items for future generations of that manufacturer's radio equipment. The EMC tests shall be performed with the EUT set to the following operation frequencies: • ingle-band equipment: - test with the operation frequency set to the centre of the operation frequency band; • double-band equipment: - test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of each operation frequency band; • HF multiband equipment or VHF/UHF multiband equipment: - test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of the lowest, middle, and highest HF operation frequency band; • HF/VHF, HF/UHF or HF/VHF/UHF combined equipment: - test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of the lowest HF band, the middle HF band, the highest HF band, the lowest VHF/UHF band, the middle VHF/UHF band, and the centre of the highest VHF/UHF band. 4.2 Arrangements for test signals 4.2.1 Arrangements for test signals at the input of transmitters The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.1 shall apply with the following modifications. If possible, the transmitter should be modulated with a suitable signal, from an internal or external signal source. If it is not appropriate to get a modulated RF signal from the transmitter, then the tests may be performed using its unmodulated carrier. It shall be possible to verify that a communications link is established and maintained. SIST EN 301 489-15 V2.2.1:2019

ETSI ETSI EN 301 489-15 V2.2.1 (2019-04)9 4.2.2 Arrangements for test signals at the output of transmitters The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.2 shall apply with the following modifications. The transmitter under test shall be modulated such that the maximum PEP output is achieved, either by single or multiple tones, or by a suitable bit stream, or in case of transmitters for other than analogue voice or data transmission, by a test modulation representative of normal use (see also clause 4.5). The manufacturer shall declare the normal test modulation. Where thermal limitations prevent continuous transmission under such conditions, the tests may be performed using gated methods. Under these circumstances, the test method used shall be recorded in the test report. 4.2.3 Arrangements for test signals at the input of receivers The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.3 shall apply with the following modifications. The receiver shall be provided with a wanted RF input signal chosen according to clause 4.2.3 of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] set to its operation frequency, and modulated with a suitable modulation signal fitting the communication system characteristics (see clause 4.5.2). If it is not appropriate to provide the receiver with a modulated wanted RF input signal, the test may be performed using an unmodulated wanted RF input signal. If possible, the wanted RF input signal to establish a communications link shall be presented to the antenna connector by a coaxial cable. The wanted RF input signal shall be set to a nominal value of 60 dB (or a lower value as declared by the manufacturer) above the maximum usable sensitivity of the EUT, as declared by the manufacturer in the product documentation. It shall be possible to verify that a communications link is established and maintained. 4.2.4 Arrangements for test signals at the output of receivers The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.4 shall apply. 4.2.5 Arrangements for testing transmitter and receiver together (as a system) The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.5 shall apply with the following modification. These arrangements are only applicable for duplex transceivers. The wanted RF input signal, coupled to the receiver, shall be modulated with a suitable test signal (see clause 4.5.3). The transmitter shall be operated at its maximum PEP RF output, modulated with the test signal, coupled to the transmitter from the output of the receiver (repeater mode). 4.3 RF exclusion band of radio communications equipment 4.3.1 Exclusion band for receivers or the receiver part of transceivers The exclusion band for a receiver and the receiver part of a transceiver is determined by the characteristics of the equipment. For receivers operating on a fixed single frequency, the exclusion band extends from -5 % to +5 % of that fixed single operation frequency. For receivers operating or capable of operating, on a number of spot frequencies in a narrow operating frequency band which is less than 20 % of the centre frequency of the operating band, the exclusion band extends from -5 % of the lowest frequency of the narrow operating frequency band to +5 % of the highest frequency of that band. For receivers operating, or capable of operating on a number of spot frequencies over a wide frequency band, the exclusion band for each of the wanted RF signal test frequencies shall extend from -5 % to +5 % of each wanted RF signal test frequency. SIST EN 301 489-15 V2.2.1:2019

ETSI ETSI EN 301 489-15 V2.2.1 (2019-04)10 NOTE: The exclusion bands are derived using different methodologies from those described in clause 4.3.3 of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]. However, the used methodologies lead to narrow exclusion bands for every amateur radio frequency band .The parameter n in the formulas derived in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] calculates in any case smaller than 1. 4.3.2 Exclusion band for transmitters or the transmitter part of transceivers 4.3.2.1 Exclusion band for EMC emission measurements For EMC emission measurements, the exclusion band for transmitters shall be determined considering the class of emission characteristics of the EUT. For EMC emission measurement purposes, the bandwidth of the exclusion band shall additionally allow for the skirt bandwidth (Fb) of the measuring instrumentation, as shown in table 1. Table 1: Transmitter exclusion band for emissions Necessary bandwidth of emission Exclusion band Centre of the exclusion band Fn < 0,05 Fc 3 Fn + Fb Fc Fn > 0,05 Fc 1,1 Fn + Fb Fc

Where: • Fn =

necessary bandwidth of the wanted class of emission as defined in ITU Radio Regulations [i.3],

clause 1.152; • Fb =
200 kHz in the frequency range below 30 MHz; • Fb =
2 MHz in the frequency range above 30 MHz; • Fc =

centre frequency of the transmitter necessary bandwidth. 4.3.2.2 Exclusion band for immunity tests For immunity tests, the exclusion band for transmitters extends plus and minus twice the maximum occupied bandwidth allowed for the type of service for which the equipment is intended to operate, centred around the occupied bandwidth. NOTE: The exclusion bands are derived using different methodologies from those described in clause 4.3.2 of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]. However, the used methodologies lead to narrower exclusion bands for every amateur radio frequency band. 4.4 Narrowband responses of receivers or receivers which are part of transceivers The provision of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.4 shall apply. 4.5 Normal test modulation 4.5.1 Transmitters For the transmitter under test, the manufacturer shall declare the normal test modulation taking due account of the following requirements: • AM transmitters: - the normal modulation signal shall consist of a single sinusoidal modulation signal, causing a modulation depth to the rated value.

1 Scope

The present document, together with ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], covers the assessment of commercially available amateur

radio equipment, and associated ancillary equipment, in respect of ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC).

Technical specifications related to the antenna port and emissions from the enclosure port of commercially available

amateur radio equipment are not included in the present document. Such technical specifications are found in the

relevant product standard ETSI EN 301 783 [i.2] for the effective use of the radio spectrum.

The present document specifies the applicable EMC tests, the methods of measurement, the limits and the performance

criteria for radio equipment intended for use by radio amateurs within the meaning of article 1, definition 53 of the

Radio Regulations [i.3] and associated ancillary equipment, which is commercially available.

Examples of amateur radio equipment covered by the present document are given in annex B.

The provisions of the present document apply to amateur radio equipment manufactured commercially either as

ready-to-use equipment, modules, or components having an intrinsic functionality for the customer.

The expression "amateur radio equipment" in the context of the present document is taken to mean "commercially

available amateur radio equipment" only.

In case of differences (for instance concerning special conditions, definitions, abbreviations) between the present

document and ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], the provisions of the present document take precedence.

The environment classification and the emission and immunity requirements used in the present document are as stated

in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], except for any special conditions included in the present document. The applicable

environments referred to in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] where equipment covered by the scope of the present document

may be used, are to be declared by the manufacturer.

4 Test conditions
4.1 General

For the purposes of the present document, the test conditions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4 shall apply as

appropriate. Further product related test conditions for amateur radio and ancillary equipment are specified in the

present document.

For emission and immunity tests, the test modulation, test arrangements, etc., as specified in the present document,

clauses 4.1 to 4.5 of the present documment, shall apply.
The general test conditions for amateur radio equipment are as follows:

• transmitters and amplifiers shall be tested in stand-by (if applicable) and in transmit mode of operation;

• transceivers and transverters shall be tested in receive, stand-by, and transmit mode of operation;

• if integral antenna equipment provides an internal antenna connector for testing purposes, then the tests can be

made via that connector.

The manufacturer shall recommend a power supply (e.g. an AC/DC power adapter) for use in conjunction with the

equipment under test (EUT), to ensure satisfactory operation of the combination during the EMC tests. When a range of

different types of power supply units can be used with several types of that manufacturer's radio equipment, then each

type of power supply unit shall be tested with the radio providing the highest RF output Peak Envelope Power (PEP).

These power supply units shall then be listed as preferred items for future generations of that manufacturer's radio

equipment.

The EMC tests shall be performed with the EUT set to the following operation frequencies:

• ingle-band equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set to the centre of the operation frequency band;

• double-band equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of each operation frequency band;

• HF multiband equipment or VHF/UHF multiband equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of the lowest, middle, and highest HF

operation frequency band;
• HF/VHF, HF/UHF or HF/VHF/UHF combined equipment:

- test with the operation frequency set in sequence to the centre of the lowest HF band, the middle HF

band, the highest HF band, the lowest VHF/UHF band, the middle VHF/UHF band, and the centre of the

highest VHF/UHF band.

4.2 Arrangements for test signals
4.2.1 Arrangements for test signals at the input of transmitters

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.1 shall apply with the following modifications.

If possible, the transmitter should be modulated with a suitable signal, from an internal or external signal source. If it is

not appropriate to get a modulated RF signal from the transmitter, then the tests may be performed using its

unmodulated carrier.

It shall be possible to verify that a communications link is established and maintained.

4.2.2 Arrangements for test signals at the output of transmitters

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.2 shall apply with the following modifications.

The transmitter under test shall be modulated such that the maximum PEP output is achieved, either by single or

multiple tones, or by a suitable bit stream, or in case of transmitters for other than analogue voice or data transmission,

by a test modulation representative of normal use (see also clause 4.5). The manufacturer shall declare the normal test

modulation.

Where thermal limitations prevent continuous transmission under such conditions, the tests may be performed using

gated methods. Under these circumstances, the test method used shall be recorded in the test report.

4.2.3 Arrangements for test signals at the input of receivers

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.3 shall apply with the following modifications.

The receiver shall be provided with a wanted RF input signal chosen according to clause 4.2.3 of ETSI

EN 301 489-1 [1] set to its operation frequency, and modulated with a suitable modulation signal fitting the

communication system characteristics (see clause 4.5.2). If it is not appropriate to provide the receiver with a modulated

wanted RF input signal, the test may be performed using an unmodulated wanted RF input signal.

If possible, the wanted RF input signal to establish a communications link shall be presented to the antenna connector

by a coaxial cable. The wanted RF input signal shall be set to a nominal value of 60 dB (or a lower value as declared by

the manufacturer) above the maximum usable sensitivity of the EUT, as declared by the manufacturer in the product

documentation.

It shall be possible to verify that a communications link is established and maintained.

4.2.4 Arrangements for test signals at the output of receivers
The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.4 shall apply.
4.2.5 Arrangements for testing transmitter and receiver together
(as a system)

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.5 shall apply with the following modification.

These arrangements are only applicable for duplex transceivers. The wanted RF input signal, coupled to the receiver,

shall be modulated with a suitable test signal (see clause 4.5.3). The transmitter shall be operated at its maximum PEP

RF output, modulated with the test signal, coupled to the transmitter from the output of the receiver (repeater mode).

4.3 RF exclusion band of radio communications equipment
4.3.1 Exclusion band for receivers or the receiver part of transceivers

The exclusion band for a receiver and the receiver part of a transceiver is determined by the characteristics of the

equipment.

For receivers operating on a fixed single frequency, the exclusion band extends from -5 % to +5 % of that fixed single

operation frequency.

For receivers operating or capable of operating, on a number of spot frequencies in a narrow operating frequency band

which is less than 20 % of the centre frequency of the operating band, the exclusion band extends from -5 % of the

lowest frequency of the narrow operating frequency band to +5 % of the highest frequency of that band.

For receivers operating, or capable of operating on a number of spot frequencies over a wide frequency band, the

exclusion band for each of the wanted RF signal test frequencies shall extend from -5 % to +5 % of each wanted RF

signal test frequency.

NOTE: The exclusion bands are derived using different methodologies from those described in clause 4.3.3 of

ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]. However, the used methodologies lead to narrow exclusion bands for every

amateur radio frequency band .The parameter n in the formulas derived in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]

calculates in any case smaller than 1.
4.3.2 Exclusion band for transmitters or the transmitter part of transceivers
4.3.2.1 Exclusion band for EMC emission measurements

For EMC emission measurements, the exclusion band for transmitters shall be determined considering the class of

emission characteristics of the EUT. For EMC emission measurement purposes, the bandwidth of the exclusion band

shall additionally allow for the skirt bandwidth (Fb) of the measuring instrumentation, as shown in table 1.

Table 1: Transmitter exclusion band for emissions
Necessary bandwidth of emission Exclusion band Centre of the exclusion band
Fn < 0,05 Fc 3 Fn + Fb Fc
Fn > 0,05 Fc 1,1 Fn + Fb Fc
Where:

• Fn = necessary bandwidth of the wanted class of emission as defined in ITU Radio Regulations [i.3],

clause 146;
• Fb = 200 kHz in the frequency range below 30 MHz;
• Fb = 2 MHz in the frequency range above 30 MHz;
• Fc = centre frequency of the transmitter necessary bandwidth.
4.3.2.2 Exclusion band for immunity tests

For immunity tests, the exclusion band for transmitters extends plus and minus twice the maximum occupied bandwidth

allowed for the type of service for which the equipment is intended to operate, centred around the occupied bandwidth.

NOTE: The exclusion bands are derived using different methodologies from those described in clause 4.3.2 of

ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1]. However, the used methodologies lead to narrower exclusion bands for every

amateur radio frequency band.

4.4 Narrowband responses of receivers or receivers which are
part of transceivers
The provision of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.4 shall apply.
4.5 Normal test modulation
4.5.1 Transmitters

For the transmitter under test, the manufacturer shall declare the normal test modulation taking due account of the

following requirements:
• AM transmitters:

- the normal modulation signal shall consist of a single sinusoidal modulation signal, causing a modulation

depth to the rated value.
• AM-SSB or AM-DSB-SC transmitters with analogue voice modulation:

- the normal modulation signal shall consist of two sinusoidal, non-harmonically related frequencies in the

audio passband such as to produce signals of equal output power.
• FM transmitters (narrowband FM):

- the normal modulation signal shall consist of a single audio frequency of such a level causing a deviation

to the rated value, as declared by the manufacturer.
