4.2 Sensitivity
4.2.1 Definition

The receiver sensitivity is the minimum wanted signal level required to provide a given level of audio quality.

4.2.2 Limits

The limits for sensitivity specified in table 2 shall apply. Each figure quoted is the required level of wanted signal which

provides a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio

SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref ±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments

(e.g. clicks resulting from FM threshold effects).

4.2.3 Conformance

Conformance tests as defined in ETSI EN 303 345-1 [1], clause 5.3.4.1 shall be carried out. The wanted signal

generator shall be set to produce a signal according to table 1 at the centre frequency according to table 2. The required

sensitivity level shall be as indicated in table 2. If the impairment criteria given in clause 4.2.2 is met then the receiver

has passed the sensitivity requirement.

4.3 Adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
4.3.1 Definition

The adjacent channel selectivity is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal

without exceeding a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted signal which differs in frequency from the

wanted signal by an amount equal to a small multiple of the adjacent channel spacing. The wanted and unwanted

signals are of the same modulation type.

The blocking ratio is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal without exceeding

a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted input signal at a given frequency separation. The wanted and

unwanted signals are of different modulation types.

In order to provide effective use of spectrum, devices shall be able to demodulate the tuned signal in the presence of

similar signals in adjacent channels. In addition, testing shall also be performed to check the ability of the receiver to

work effectively with interfering signals at a greater separation from the wanted signal (blocking).

The channel spacings specified in table 3 shall apply.
Table 3: Channel spacing for adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
Demodulation Tuned frequency Unwanted frequency Unwanted frequency
band (N = 2, 3, 4) (blocking)
FM VHF band II ±N × 100 kHz ±800 kHz
4.3.2 Limits

The limits for selectivity and blocking specified in table 4 shall apply with the channel spacings given in table 3. Each

figure quoted is the minimum acceptable level of unwanted signal, relative to that of the wanted signal, which provides

a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref

±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments (e.g. clicks resulting

from FM threshold effects).

NOTE 1: The ACS and blocking requirements are currently separated into different limits for radiated and

conducted testing methods. These limits are likely to be unified in a future revision of the present

document. Users of the present document should consult frequently the latest list published in the Official

Journal of the European Union.

NOTE 2: The frequency of the interferer shall be calculated using the channel spacing data in table 3 for each of

the 6 defined adjacent channels N = {-4, -3, -2, +2, +3, +4} and the two blocking offsets. Each row of

table 4 thus defines 8 individual tests.

NOTE 3: The minimum level of I for the relevant level of impairment is calculated by adding the I/C ratio to the

wanted C level.

NOTE 4: The wanted signal level for receivers with integral antenna is 73 dBμV/m.

4.2 Sensitivity
4.2.1 Definition

The receiver sensitivity is the minimum wanted signal level required to provide a given level of audio quality.

4.2.2 Limits

The limits for sensitivity specified in table 2 shall apply. Each figure quoted is the required level of wanted signal which

provides a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio

SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref ±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments

(e.g. clicks resulting from FM threshold effects).

4.2.3 Conformance

Conformance tests as defined in ETSI EN 303 345-1 [1], clause 5.3.4.1 shall be carried out. The wanted signal

generator shall be set to produce a signal according to table 1 at the centre frequency according to table 2. The required

sensitivity level shall be as indicated in table 2. If the impairment criteria given in clause 4.2.2 is met then the receiver

has passed the sensitivity requirement.

4.3 Adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
4.3.1 Definition

The adjacent channel selectivity is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal

without exceeding a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted signal which differs in frequency from the

wanted signal by an amount equal to a small multiple of the adjacent channel spacing. The wanted and unwanted

signals are of the same modulation type.

The blocking ratio is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal without exceeding

a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted input signal at a given frequency separation. The wanted and

unwanted signals are of different modulation types.

In order to provide effective use of spectrum, devices shall be able to demodulate the tuned signal in the presence of

similar signals in adjacent channels. In addition, testing shall also be performed to check the ability of the receiver to

work effectively with interfering signals at a greater separation from the wanted signal (blocking).

The channel spacings specified in table 3 shall apply.
Table 3: Channel spacing for adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
Demodulation Tuned frequency Unwanted frequency Unwanted frequency
band (N = 2, 3, 4) (blocking)
FM VHF band II ±N × 100 kHz ±800 kHz
4.3.2 Limits

The limits for selectivity and blocking specified in table 4 shall apply with the channel spacings given in table 3. Each

figure quoted is the minimum acceptable level of unwanted signal, relative to that of the wanted signal, which provides

a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref

±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments (e.g. clicks resulting

from FM threshold effects).

NOTE 1: The ACS and blocking requirements are currently separated into different limits for radiated and

conducted testing methods. These limits are likely to be unified in a future revision of the present

document. Users of the present document should consult frequently the latest list published in the Official

Journal of the European Union.

NOTE 2: The frequency of the interferer shall be calculated using the channel spacing data in table 3 for each of

the 6 defined adjacent channels N = {-4, -3, -2, +2, +3, +4} and the two blocking offsets. Each row of

table 4 thus defines 8 individual tests.

NOTE 3: The minimum level of I for the relevant level of impairment is calculated by adding the I/C ratio to the

wanted C level.

NOTE 4: The wanted signal level for receivers with integral antenna is 73 dBμV/m.

4.3.3 Conformance

Conformance tests as defined in ETSI EN 303 345-1 [1], clause 5.3.5.1 shall be carried out for all eight frequency

offsets specified in table 3.

The wanted and unwanted signal generators shall be set to produce signals according to table 1. The centre frequency of

the wanted signal is set according to table 4. The frequency offset of the unwanted or blocking signal to the wanted

signal is set according to table 3. The required wanted signal level shall be as indicated in table 4. The required

unwanted or blocking signal level offset shall be as indicated in table 4. If the impairment criteria given in clause 4.3.2

is met for all the test offsets then the receiver has passed the adjacent channel selectivity and blocking requirement.

4.4 Unwanted emissions in the spurious domain
4.4.1 Definition

Spurious domain radiated and conducted (differential voltage) emissions from the equipment.

4.4.2 Limits

The limits for conducted (differential voltage) spurious domain emissions for an external RF port are specified in

EN 55032 [4], table A.13, clause 13.3 for all receivers except car radios, or clause 13.4 for car radios.

The limits for radiated spurious domain emissions are specified in EN 55032 [4], tables A.4, A5 and A6.

4.4.3 Conformance

For receivers with an external antenna connection, conformity shall be assessed by measuring the conducted (conducted

differential voltage) emissions from the external RF port and radiated emissions from the cabinet and structure of the

equipment (cabinet radiation).

For receivers without an external antenna connection, conformity shall be assessed by measuring the radiated emissions

from the cabinet and t

4.2 Sensitivity
4.2.1 Definition

The receiver sensitivity is the minimum wanted signal level required to provide a given level of audio quality.

4.2.2 Limits

The limits for sensitivity specified in table 2 shall apply. Each figure quoted is the required level of wanted signal which

provides a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio

SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref ±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments

(e.g. clicks resulting from FM threshold effects).

4.3 Adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
4.3.1 Definition

The adjacent channel selectivity is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal

without exceeding a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted signal which differs in frequency from the

wanted signal by an amount equal to a small multiple of the adjacent channel spacing. The wanted and unwanted

signals are of the same modulation type.

The blocking ratio is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal without exceeding

a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted input signal at a given frequency separation. The wanted and

unwanted signals are of different modulation types.

In order to provide effective use of spectrum, devices shall be able to demodulate the tuned signal in the presence of

similar signals in adjacent channels. In addition, testing shall also be performed to check the ability of the receiver to

work effectively with interfering signals at a greater separation from the wanted signal (blocking).

The channel spacings specified in table 3 shall apply.
Table 3: Channel spacing for adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
Demodulation Tuned frequency Unwanted frequency Unwanted frequency
band (N = 2, 3, 4) (blocking)
FM VHF band II ±N × 100 kHz ±800 kHz
4.3.2 Limits

The limits for selectivity and blocking specified in table 4 shall apply with the channel spacings given in table 3. Each

figure quoted is the minimum acceptable level of unwanted signal, relative to that of the wanted signal, which provides

a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref

±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments (e.g. clicks resulting

from FM threshold effects).

NOTE 1: The ACS and blocking requirements are currently separated into different limits for radiated and

conducted testing methods. These limits are likely to be unified in a future revision of the present

document. Users of the present document should consult frequently the latest list published in the Official

Journal of the European Union.

NOTE 2: The frequency of the interferer shall be calculated using the channel spacing data in table 3 for each of

the 6 defined adjacent channels N = {-4, -3, -2, +2, +3, +4} and the two blocking offsets. Each row of

table 4 thus defines 8 individual tests.

NOTE 3: The minimum level of I for the relevant level of impairment is calculated by adding the I/C ratio to the

wanted C level.

NOTE 4: The wanted signal level for receivers with integral antenna is 73 dBμV/m.

4.3.3 Conformance

Conformance tests as defined in ETSI EN 303 345-1 [1], clause 5.3.5.1 shall be carried out for all eight frequency

offsets specified in table 3.

The wanted and unwanted signal generators shall be set to produce signals according to table 1. The centre frequency of

the wanted signal is set according to table 4. The frequency offset of the unwanted or blocking signal to the wanted

signal is set according to table 3. The required wanted signal level shall be as indicated in table 4. The required

unwanted or blocking signal level offset shall be as indicated in table 4. If the impairment criteria given in clause 4.3.2

is met for all the test offsets then the receiver has passed the adjacent channel selectivity and blocking requirement.

4.4 Unwanted emissions in the spurious domain
4.4.1 Definition

Spurious domain radiated and conducted (differential voltage) emissions from the equipment.

4.4.2 Limits

The limits for conducted (differential voltage) spurious domain emissions for an external RF port are specified in

EN 55032 [4], table A.13, clause 13.3 for all receivers except car radios, or clause 13.4 for car radios.

The limits for radiated spurious domain emissions are specified in EN 55032 [4], tables A.4, A5 and A6.

4.4.3 Conformance

For receivers with an external antenna connection, conformity shall be assessed by measuring the conducted (conducted

differential voltage) emissions from the external RF port and radiated emissions from the cabinet and structure of the

equipment (cabinet radiation).

For receivers without an external antenna connection, conformity shall be assessed by measuring the radiated emissions

from the cabinet and the built-in or integral antenna (cabinet radiation).

The level of spurious emissions shall be measured according to EN 55032 [4], clause 6.3, clause 8, table A.1,

clause A.8.5 in table A.8, annex B, clause C.2.1, clause C.2.2, clause C.2.3, clause C.3.1, clause C.3.2, clause C.3.3,

clause C.3.4, clause C.3.7, clause C.4.2, clause C.4.4 and annex D and carried out by conducted (conducted differential

voltage) emissions from an external RF port and/or radiated emissions from the cabinet and structure of the equipment

(cabinet radiation).

If the limits given in clause 4.4.2 are met then the receiver has passed the unwanted emissions in the spurious domain

requirement.
5 Testing for compliance with technical requirements
5.1 Environmental conditions for testing

Tests defined in the present document shall be carried out at representative points within the boundary limits of the

operational environmental profile defined by its intended use.

4.2 Sensitivity
4.2.1 Definition

The receiver sensitivity is the minimum wanted signal level required to provide a given level of audio quality.

4.2.2 Limits

The limits for sensitivity specified in table 2 shall apply. Each figure quoted is the required level of wanted signal which

provides a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio

SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref ±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments

(e.g. clicks resulting from FM threshold effects).

4.3 Adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
4.3.1 Definition

The adjacent channel selectivity is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal

without exceeding a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted signal which differs in frequency from the

wanted signal by an amount equal to a small multiple of the adjacent channel spacing. The wanted and unwanted

signals are of the same modulation type.

The blocking ratio is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal without exceeding

a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted input signal at a given frequency separation. The wanted and

unwanted signals are of different modulation types.

In order to provide effective use of spectrum, devices shall be able to demodulate the tuned signal in the presence of

similar signals in adjacent channels. In addition, testing shall also be performed to check the ability of the receiver to

work effectively with interfering signals at a greater separation from the wanted signal (blocking).

The channel spacings specified in table 3 shall apply.
Table 3: Channel spacing for adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
Demodulation Tuned frequency Unwanted frequency Unwanted frequency
band (N = 2, 3, 4) (blocking)
FM VHF band II ±N × 100 kHz ±800 kHz
4.3.2 Limits

The limits for selectivity and blocking specified in table 4 shall apply with the channel spacings given in table 3. Each

figure quoted is the minimum acceptable level of unwanted signal, relative to that of the wanted signal, which provides

a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref

±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments (e.g. clicks resulting

from FM threshold effects).

NOTE 1: The ACS and blocking requirements are currently separated into different limits for radiated and

conducted testing methods. These limits are likely to be unified in a future revision of the present

document. Users of the present document should consult frequently the latest list published in the Official

Journal of the European Union.

NOTE 2: The frequency of the interferer shall be calculated using the channel spacing data in table 3 for each of

the 6 defined adjacent channels N = {-4, -3, -2, +2, +3, +4} and the two blocking offsets. Each row of

table 4 thus defines 8 individual tests.

NOTE 3: The minimum level of I for the relevant level of impairment is calculated by adding the I/C ratio to the

wanted C level.

NOTE 4: The wanted signal level for receivers with integral antenna is 73 dB μV/m.

4.3.3 Conformance

Conformance tests as defined in ETSI EN 303 345-1 [1], clause 5.3.5.1 shall be carried out for all eight frequency

offsets specified in table 3.

The wanted and unwanted signal generators shall be set to produce signals according to table 1. The centre frequency of

the wanted signal is set according to table 4. The frequency offset of the unwanted or blocking signal to the wanted

signal is set according to table 3. The required wanted signal level shall be as indicated in table 4. The required

unwanted or blocking signal level offset shall be as indicated in table 4. If the impairment criteria given in clause 4.3.2

is met for all the test offsets then the receiver has passed the adjacent channel selectivity and blocking requirement.

5 Testing for compliance with technical requirements
5.1 Environmental conditions for testing

Tests defined in the present document shall be carried out at representative points within the boundary limits of the

declared operational environmental profile.

Where technical performance varies subject to environmental conditions, tests shall be carried out under a sufficient

variety of environmental conditions (within the boundary limits of the declared operational environmental profile) to

give confidence of compliance for the affected technical requirements.

The equipment shall be tested under normal test conditions according to the relevant product and basic standards or to

the information accompanying the equipment, which are within the manufacturers declared range of humidity,

temperature and supply voltage. The test conditions shall be recorded in the test report.

5.2 Interpretation of the measurement results

The interpretation of the results recorded in a test report for the measurements described in the present document shall

be as follows:

• the measured value related to the corresponding limit will be used to decide whether an equipment meets the

requirements of the present document;

• the value of the measurement uncertainty for the measurement of each parameter shall be included in the test

report.

For the test methods, according to the present document, the measurement uncertainty figures shall be calculated and

shall correspond to an expansion factor (coverage factor) k = 1,96 or k = 2 (which provide confidence levels of

respectively 95 % and 95,45 % in the case where the distributions characterizing the actual measurement uncertainties

are normal (Gaussian)). Principles for the calculation of measurement uncertainty are contained in ETSI

TR 100 028 [i.3], in particular in annex D of ETSI TR 100 028-2 [i.4].

4.2 Sensitivity
4.2.1 Definition

The receiver sensitivity is the minimum wanted signal level required to provide a given level of audio quality.

4.2.2 Limits

The limits for sensitivity specified in table 2 shall apply. Each figure quoted is the required level of wanted signal which

provides a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio

SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref ±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments

(e.g. clicks resulting from FM threshold effects).

4.2.3 Conformance

Conformance tests as defined in ETSI EN 303 345-1 [1], clause 5.3.4.1 shall be carried out. The wanted signal

generator shall be set to produce a signal according to table 1 at the centre frequency according to table 2. The required

sensitivity level shall be as indicated in table 2. If the impairment criteria given in clause 4.2.2 is met then the receiver

has passed the sensitivity requirement.

4.3 Adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
4.3.1 Definition

The adjacent channel selectivity is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal

without exceeding a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted signal which differs in frequency from the

wanted signal by an amount equal to a small multiple of the adjacent channel spacing. The wanted and unwanted

signals are of the same modulation type.

The blocking ratio is a measure of the capability of the receiver to receive a wanted modulated signal without exceeding

a given degradation due to the presence of an unwanted input signal at a given frequency separation. The wanted and

unwanted signals are of different modulation types.

In order to provide effective use of spectrum, devices shall be able to demodulate the tuned signal in the presence of

similar signals in adjacent channels. In addition, testing shall also be performed to check the ability of the receiver to

work effectively with interfering signals at a greater separation from the wanted signal (blocking).

The channel spacings specified in table 3 shall apply.
Table 3: Channel spacing for adjacent channel selectivity and blocking
Demodulation Tuned frequency Unwanted frequency Unwanted frequency
band (N = 2, 3, 4) (blocking)
FM VHF band II ±N × 100 kHz ±800 kHz
4.3.2 Limits

The limits for selectivity and blocking specified in table 4 shall apply with the channel spacings given in table 3. Each

figure quoted is the minimum acceptable level of unwanted signal, relative to that of the wanted signal, which provides

a given level of audio quality. The audio impairment criteria relevant for these tests is that the audio SNR ≥ 40 dBQ ref

±60,8 kHz deviation, and that there shall be 10 seconds of audio with no subjective impairments (e.g. clicks resulting

from FM threshold effects).

NOTE 1: The ACS and blocking requirements are currently separated into different limits for radiated and

conducted testing methods. These limits are likely to be unified in a future revision of the present

document. Users of the present document should consult frequently the latest list published in the Official

Journal of the European Union.

NOTE 2: The frequency of the interferer shall be calculated using the channel spacing data in table 3 for each of

the 6 defined adjacent channels N = {-4, -3, -2, +2, +3, +4} and the two blocking offsets. Each row of

table 4 thus defines 8 individual tests.

NOTE 3: The minimum level of I for the relevant level of impairment is calculated by adding the I/C ratio to the

wanted C level.

NOTE 4: The wanted signal level for receivers with integral antenna is 73 dBμV/m.

4.3.3 Conformance

Conformance tests as defined in ETSI EN 303 345-1 [1], clause 5.3.5.1 shall be carried out for all eight frequency

offsets specified in table 3.

The wanted and unwanted signal generators shall be set to produce signals according to table 1. The centre frequency of

the wanted signal is set according to table 4. The frequency offset of the unwanted or blocking signal to the wanted

signal is set according to table 3. The required wanted signal level shall be as indicated in table 4. The required

unwanted or blocking signal level offset shall be as indicated in table 4. If the impairment criteria given in clause 4.3.2

is met for all the test offsets then the receiver has passed the adjacent channel selectivity and blocking requirement.

5 Testing for compliance with technical requirements
5.1 Environmental conditions for testing

Tests defined in the present document shall be carried out at representative points within the boundary limits of the

declared operational environmental profile.

Where technical performance varies subject to environmental conditions, tests shall be carried out under a sufficient

variety of environmental conditions (within the boundary limits of the declared operational environmental profile) to

give confidence of compliance for the affected technical requirements.

The equipment shall be tested under normal test conditions according to the relevant product and basic standards or to

the information accompanying the equipment, which are within the manufacturers declared range of humidity,

temperature and supply voltage. The test conditions shall be recorded in the test report.
