Compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous
Substances (RoHS) Directive
The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union authorized Directive 2002/95/EC on
January 27, 2003 for the restriction of certain hazardous substances and materials used in manufacturing of electronic equipment. This directive requires that European manufacturers whose products
are developed or imported into the European Union reduce their use of six hazardous substances to minimum acceptable levels.
The six substances affected are:
• Lead (Pb)
• Mercury (Hg)
• Cadmium (Cd)
• Chromium hexavalent (Cr +6)
• Ether polybrominated diphenyl (PBDE)
• Polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) Joining in a global effort to reduce hazardous substances, Tradewind products that have been tested
and certified to comply with this directive are labeled with the Tradewind RoHS Compliant logo on
their technical specification datasheets. Absence of this logo in electronics product datasheets does
not mean non-compliance, but these products may later be certified for compliance. Tradewind will continue testing, adapting, and certifying products as part of our commitment to reduce
the use of hazardous substances in electronic equipment. For more updated information about RoHS
compliant Tradewind products visit http://www.paceintl.com/rohs.

Preface
Frequency Response Diagrams
The frequency response diagram is used as a reference for product rating and quality control. It can
illustrate product operation and performance across the frequency domain in a single image. The image plots signal transmission gain in deciBells (dB) on the vertical axis, and the test frequency (MHz)
on the horizontal axis. The frequency tested ranges from 300 KHz to 3 GHz. Markers are used to
document points of interest within this range. Some points of interest are the cutoff frequency where
the transmission gain drops 3 dB, or the dB gain or loss at commonly used frequencies*. The marker
table shows values associated with these frequencies. The tilt is the rate of increase in gain over a
frequency range and can be calculated from information obtained in the marker table. The flatness of
a device is observed in the absence of spikes, changes, or disturbances within a frequency interval
range. Standard Quality Control for any RF equipment allows a margin of +/- 3dB on it’s rating unless
otherwise specified. Tradewind products are tested to meet or exceed these quality control standards
offering greater confidence.

Commonly Used Frequencies

Preface
Distribution Panel Layout Design
Use the physical dimension diagrams to estimate the size and design, the placement layout and inter connections between components. These components are also available in various document
formats to assist in preparing your custom design layout. You may
download them online at: http://www.paceintl.com/tech_services/distribution_diagrams.asp
Preface - 12
Preface
Headend Design
Customize a headend rack by accommodating the components
you need on it within the capacity of the rack. An 84” rack has a
capacity of 42U, this means that it can accommodate 42 1U components, 21 2U components, 10 40U, and so on. A typical SMATV
headend design is shown to the left; however, professional training is necessary to correctly design, assemble and balance a headend unit. SBCA Level 3 offers the skills needed to design, build,
and balance a commercial head-end system correctly. Pace International offers SBCA training at the PACE training centers, and on-site for sponsored events. More information on
training schedules and SBCA levels 1, 2, 3, 4.1 & 4.2 available at
http://www.paceintl.com/tech_services/TrainingEvents.asp
Pace International also delivers custom built “turnkey” head-end
systems. Everything you need to install a head-end system ready
to use right out of the box. Find out more at http://www.paceintl.

Tradewind LDB Series distribution boxes enable the integration of
analog (MATV or Off-Air) with digital satellite (L-band or Stacked
DBS) into a single coax cable. All outputs are good for 200 feet over
RG6 coax, and a 4-way splitter at the end of the coax run. Analog
signal loss is approximately 35 dB including the 4-way splitter at the
end of the run.
Tradewind LDB Boxes are excellent for apartments, condos, office
buildings and other commercial applications to make every outlet
DIRECTV ready. They are a convenient, centralized solution to power
all your units.
A Dual LDB allows to distribute two separate L-Band signals from
the same box. An LDB-24D will have 12 dual outputs which can be
split 4 ways each for a total of 48 receivers. Two Dual LDBs can be
used side by side to distribute 4 L-Band lines as is the case with 3
phase satellites.

Glossary of Common SMATV, Broadcast
Television and Satellite Terms
A/B Switch: A switch that selects one of two inputs (A or B) for routing
to a common output.
Adjacent Channel: An adjacent channel is immediately next to another
channel in frequency. For example, NTSC channels 5 and 6 as well as
8 and 9 are adjacent. However, channels 4 and 5 or channels 6 and 7
are separated by signals used by non-TV media.
Agile Component: A component which can be tuned to any desired
channel.
Azimuth-Elevation (Az-El) Mount: An antenna mount which tracks satellites by moving in two directions: the azimuth in the horizontal plane;
and elevation up from the horizon.
Azimuth: A compass bearing expressed in degrees of rotation clockwise
from true north. It is one of the two coordinates (azimuth and elevation) used to align a satellite antenna.
Band: A range of frequencies.
Alignment: The process of fine tuning a dish or an electronic circuit to
maximize its sensitivity and signal receiving capability.
Ambient Temperature: The existing dry bulb temperature.
Band Separator: A device that splits a group of specified frequencies
into two or more bands. Common types include UHF/VHF, Hi/Lo band
and FM separators.
Bandpass Filter: A circuit or device that allows only a specified range of
frequencies to pass from input to output.
Amplifier: A device used to increase the power of a signal.
Bandwidth: The frequency range allocated to any communication
circuit.
Analog-to-Digital Converter: A circuit that converts analog signals to
an equivalent digital form. The varying analog signal is sampled at
a series of points in time. The voltage at each of these points is then
represented by a series of digits. The higher this sampling frequency,
the finer are the gradations and the more accurately is the signal
represented.
Antenna: A device that collects and focuses electromagnetic energy,
i.e, contributes an energy gain. Satellite dishes, broadband antenna,
and cut-to-channel antennas are some types of antennas encountered
in private cable systems. In the case of satellite antennas, gain is proportional to the surface area of the microwave dish.
Baseband: The raw audio and video signals prior to modulation and
broadcasting. Most satellite headend equipment utilizes baseband
inputs.
Beamwidth: A measure used to describe the width of vision of an antenna. It is measured as degrees between the 3 dB half power points.
Block Downconversion: The process of lowering the entire band of
frequencies in one step to some intermediate range to be processed
inside a satellite receiver. Multiple block downconversion receivers are
capable of independently selecting channels because each can process
the entire block of signals.
Antenna Efficiency: The percentage of incoming satellite signal actually
captured by an antenna.
BNC Connector: A weatherproof twist lock coax connector standard
on commercial video equipment and used on some brands of satellite
receivers.
Antenna Illumination: Describes how a feedhorn “sees” the surface of a
dish as well as the surrounding terrain.
Broadband: A device that processes a signal(s) spanning a relatively
broad range of input frequencies.
Antenna Pre-Amp: Amplifies a low level, possibly high impedance, signal from an off air antenna. A preamplifier can also help make a signal
immune to other signals caused by adjacent channel signals.
CATV: An abbreviation for Community Antenna Television- another
name for cable TV.
Attenuation: The decrease in signal power that occurs in a device or
when a signal travels to reach a destination point (path loss).
Attenuator: A passive device which reduces the power of a signal. They
are rated according to the amount of signal attenuation.
Audio Subcarrier: The carrier wave that transmits audio information
within a video broadcast signal. Satellite transmissions can relay more
than a single audio subcarrier in the frequency range between 5 and
8.5 MHz.
Automatic Frequency Control (AFC): A circuit that locks onto a chosen
frequency and will not drift away from that frequency.
Automatic Gain Control (AGC): A circuit that locks the gain onto a fixed
value and thus compensates for varying input signal levels keeping the
output constant.
C-Band: The 3.7 to 4.2 GHz band of frequencies at which some broadcast satellites operate.
Carrier: A pure-frequency signal that is modulated to carry information.
In the process of modulation it is spread out over a wider band. The
carrier frequency is the center frequency on any television channel.
Carrier-to-Noise Ratio (CNR): The ratio of the received carrier power
to the noise power in a given bandwidth. The C/N is an indicator of
how well an earth receiving station will perform in a particular location,
and is calculated from satellite power levels, antenna gain and the
combined antenna and LNA noise temperature.
Channel: A segment of bandwidth used for one complete communication link.
Chrominance: The hue and saturation of a color. The chrominance
signal is modulated onto a 3.58 MHz carrier.
Appendix - 199
APPENDIX
Analog: A system in which signals vary continuously in contrast to a
digital system in which signals vary in discrete steps.
Circular Polarization: Electromagnetic waves whose electric field
uniformly rotates along the signal path. Broadcasts used by Intelsat
and other international satellites use circular, not horizontally or vertically polarized waves as are common in North America and European
transmissions.
Clipping: The shearing off of the peaks of a signal. For a picture signal,
this may affect either the positive (white or negative (black) peaks. For
composite video signal, the synchronizing signal may be affected.
Clark Belt: The circular orbital belt at 22,247 miles above the equator,
named after the writer Arthur C. Clarke, in which satellites travel at the
same speed as the earth’s rotation. Also called the geosynchronous or
geostationary orbit.
Color Bars: A test pattern of specifically colored vertical bars used as a
reference to test the performance of a color television.
Coaxial Cable: A cable for transmitting high frequency electrical signals
with low loss. It is composed of an internal conducting wire surrounded
by an insulating dielectric, which is further protected by a metal shield.
In a SMATV system, coax impedance is 75 ohms.
Combiner: An active or passive device that serves to combine several
signals into one output while maintaining a high degree of isolation
between each input.
Composite Baseband Signal: The complete audio and video signal
without a carrier wave. Satellite signals have audio baseband information ranging in frequency from zero to 3400 Hertz. NTSC video
baseband is from zero to 4.2 MHz.
Composite Video Signal: The complete video signal consisting of the
chrominance and luminance information as well as all sync and blanking pulses.
Contrast: The ratio between the dark and light areas of a television
picture.
Converter: A device for changing signals from one frequency to another
frequency. A device used to transfer signals from a channel of one
frequency to another.
Cross Modulation: A form of interference caused by the modulation of
one carrier affecting that of another signal. It can be caused by overloading an amplifier as well as by signal imbalances at the headend.
Demodulator: A device which extracts the signal from the transmitted
carrier wave.
Detent Tuning: Tuning into a satellite channel by selecting a preset
resistance.
Dielectric: An electrical insulator in which the electrical field can be
sustained with a minimum dissipation of its energy.
Digital: Describes a system or device in which information is transferred
by electrical “on/off,” “high-low,” or “1/0” pulses instead of continuously varying signals as in an analog message.
Digital-to-Analog Converter: A circuit that converts digital signals into
their equivalent analog form.
Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS): A term commonly used to describe
Ku-band broadcasts via satellite directly to individual end-users. The
North American DBS band ranges from 12.2 to 11.7 GHz.
Diplexer: A device that combines RF frequencies (not power assigned)
and satellite frequencies (power assigned) on one coax. Diplexers can
also separate and RF signals
Dish: Jargon for a parabolic microwave antenna:
Distribution System: A communication system consisting of coax but
occasionally of line-of-sight microwave links that carries signals from
the headend to end users.
Down converter: A circuit that lowers the high frequency signal to a
lower, intermediate range. There are three distinct types of down conversion used in satellite receivers: single down conversion; dual down
conversion; and block down conversion.
Drop Cable: The cable used to route a signal from outside distribution
equipment to a television.
Dual Feedhorn: A feedhorn which can simultaneously receive both
horizontally and vertically polarized signals.
Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP): A measure of the signal
strength that a satellite transmits towards the earth below. The EIRP is
highest at the center of the beam and decreases at angles away from
the boresight.
Egress Interference: An undesired leakage of radiation from a cable or
other closed circuit systems.
Elevation Angle: The vertical angle measured from the horizon up to a
targeted satellite.
Encoder: A device for scrambling a signal.
Crosstalk: Interference between adjacent channels often caused by
cross modulation.
DC Power Block: A device which stops the flow of DC power but permits passage of higher frequency signals.
Decibel (dB): The logarithmic ratio of power levels used to indicate
gains or losses of signals. Decibels relative to one watt, milliwatt and
millivolt are abbreviated as dBw, dBm, and dBmV, respectively. Zero
dBmV is used as the standard reference for all SMATV calculations.
Declination Offset Angle: The adjustment angle of a polar mount
between the polar axis and the plane of a satellite antenna used to
aim, at the geosynchronous arc. Declination increases from zero with
latitude away from the equator.
Decoder: A circuit that restores a signal to its original form after it has
been scrambled.
F-connector: A standard RF connector used to link coax cables with
electronic devices.
FCC: The Federal Communications Commission, the regulatory board
which sets standards for communications within the United States.
F/D Radio: The ratio of an antenna’s focal length to diameter. It describes antenna “depth.”
Feeder Line: The coaxial cable serving as a subtrunk to feed drop
cables.
Filter: A device used to reject all but a specified range of frequencies.
A bandpass filter allows only those signals within a given band to be
communicated. A rejection filter, the mirror image of a bandpass filter,
eliminates those signals within a specified band but passes all other
frequencies.
Appendix - 200
APPENDIX
Chrominance Signal: The color component of the composite baseband
video signal assembled from the I and Q portions. Phase angle of the
signal represents hue and amplitude represents color saturation.
Focal Length: The distance from the reflective surface of a parabola
to the point at which incoming satellite signals are focused, the focal
point.
Frame: One complete TV picture. It is composed of two fields and has a
total of 525 scanning lines in NTSC transmission.
Frequency: The number of vibrations per second of an electrical or electromagnetic signal expressed in cycles per second or Hertz.
Isolator: A device that allows signals to pass unobstructed in one direction but which attenuates their strength in the reverse direction.
Isolation Loss: The amount of signal energy lost between two ports of a
device. An example is the loss between the feed through port and the
tap/drop of a topoff device.
Kilohertz (kHz): One thousand cycles per second.
Frequency Response: The change of gain with frequency.
Ku-Band: The microwave frequency band between approximately 11
and 13 GHz used in satellite broadcasting.
Gain: The amount of amplification of input to output power often expressed as a multiplicative factor or in decibels.
LC Modulator: A modulator constructed from passive inductive and
capacitive circuit elements.
Gain Compression: The gain of any amplifier is a function of the input
signal level, and will always decrease at some point where the input
level is sufficiently high. The capacity of an amplifier is sometimes
expressed as the level where the gain of the amplifier is decreased or
compressed by a certain amount.
Latitude: The measurement of a position on the surface of the earth
north or south of the equator measured in degrees of angle.
Gain-to-Noise Temperature Ratio (G/T): The figure of merit of an antenna and LNA. The higher the G/T, the better the reception capabilities of an earth station.

Wavelength Versus Frequency Chart
Standard TV channels are 6 MHz wide starting from the lower edge of channel 2 at 54 MHz. Within the 6 MHz space
is the video carrier, the color carrier, and the audio carrier for the channel.
The video carrier frequency is 1.25 MHz above the lower edge, for channel 2 the video is at 55.25 MHz.
The color carrier is generated by the composite video signal. It is located approximately 3.58 MHz above the video
carrier, for channel 2 this would be located at 58.83 MHz.
The audio carrier is located 4.5 MHz above the video carrier, for channel 2 it is 59.75 MHz.
A channel frequency may be referred by the lower edge (in example 54 MHz), as a range of lower edge to upper
edge (54-60 MHz), or by the video carrier (55.25 MHz). The video carrier is the most commonly used reference used
in tables to match a channel with it's frequency as it is the frequency measured with RF meters.
Standard CATV frequency matches IRC except for the A-x channels 95-99. IRC stands for Incrementally Related Carrier and means that the lower edge of the channel space is numbered such as 54 MHz, 60 MHz, 66 MHz etc. HRC
stands for Harmonically Related Carrier, and means that the video carrier is assigned to the lower edge. Some cable
systems use STD cable, IRC, and some use HRC.
CATV accommodates more channels and at lower frequencies than Over-The-Air broadcast TV as it allocates channels every 6 MHz without leaving frequency gaps that are used for short range radios, and other communication
systems. Over-The-Air broadcast TV has gaps before channel 2 (54-60 MHz) between channel 6 (82-88 MHz) and
channel 7 (174-180 MHz), and also between channel 13 (210-216 MHz) and channel 14 (470-476 MHz).
CATV has channels with frequencies below channel 2. They are designated T-7 through T-14 and are usually used for
transmission in the reverse direction. These are also known as the Return Path Channels. Broadband internet access,
security cameras, and live broadcast feeds use the T channels or Return Path Channels to reach the headend.
Channels with the designation A-1 through A-8 are designated because their frequencies immediately precede that
of the CATV channel 14 known as A. Some of these are used for CATV channels 95-99.
