1260 - Guide on the Prediction, Measurement, and Analysis of AM Broadcast Reradiation by Power Lines

An AM broadcast array is carefully constructed to radiate strongly towards listeners and weakly in directions where interference to other stations could result. Reradiation can occur when the broadcasted signals are parasitically picked up by a large metallic structure and then rebroadcasted, or reradiated, from that structure. This can result in a decrease in signal towards listening areas and an increase in signal in protected directions. The process of predicting, measuring, and analyzing the interference is complex and nontrivial, and is why this guide was developed. It is anticipated that this guide will be used by owners of potentially reradiating structures, and radio stations.
