    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Defines a simple method for measurement of load resonance frequency fL and load resonance resistance RL, in the frequency range not in excess of 30 MHz. Permits calculation of load resonance frequency ranges and pulling sensitivity as laid down in IEC 122-1, Amd 1.
