Hello Alberto, LU2FGN

First you have to convert the temperature equivalent of noise T in factor
of noise F utilizing the following relation:

F= (T / 290 ) + 1

Second you have to convert the factor of noise F in "noise figure" NF (db )
utilizing the following relation:

NF = 10 log F  (dB)

Example:
To calculate NF with reference to this data:

Temperature equivalent of noise T = 12 kelvin

F = (12 / 290) + 1 = 1,041

NF = 10 log  1,041 = 0,18 dB

I hope to contact you very soon on AO40

At the moment the only active Argentine station on AO40 L/S is Daniel, LU2DDU

Hola Alberto,LU2FGN

Primero usted tiene que convertir la temperatura equivalente de ruido  T en
factor de ruido F utilizando la seguente relation:

F= ( T / 290 ) + 1

Segundo tiene que convertir el factor de ruido F en
"noise figure" NF ( dB ) utilizando  la seguente relation:

NF = 10 log    F          (dB)
10

Exemplo:
Calcular NF con riferimento a sus datos:

Temperatura equivalente de ruido  T= 12 kelvin

F= ( 12 / 290 ) + 1 = 1,041

NF = 10 log    1,041  =  0,18 dB
10

Espero de contactarte muy pronto en AO40

Al momento la unica estation argentina activa en AO40 L/S es Daniel, LU2DDU
