The participants learned about signal environments, measurement equipment and operation methods. Theoretical lessons were supplemented with hand-on sessions, where the attendees learned how to practically handle state-of-the-art systems.

Participants learned the basics of radio wave propagation, including various physical effects and the impact on spectrum monitoring. They were familiarized with the required measurement equipment from Rohde & Schwarz and its practical implementations. The lessons explained operation principles for different tasks in their daily work. The entire course was based on the typical signal environments of today and ITU recommendations.
