On this page we will tie together our content on microwave communication systems, or anything else that could contain the word "radio".

Radio astronomy is a kind of radio, but is very different from the normal communications function of most radio.   Here's a page on radiometric receivers (used in radio astronomy).

Noise temperature is how most radio designers think of noise, as opposed to noise figure that is used in radar design.

Here's a page on noise temperature, noise figure and noise factor conversion. And here's a noise conversion calculator you can use

Outside of Microwaves101, here is a good site to learn about noise in receivers:

Software-defined radio (SDR) is a growing field, which spans analog and digital design.  Click here to learn about SDR.

Microwave amateur radio (HAM) is discussed here.
