ABSTRACT: This Technical Advisory (TA) provides the system requirements for and a description of co-channel dual-polarization (dual-pol) digital
radio systems. The requirements apply to the 2-, 4-, 6-, and 11-GHz bands; with the 6-GHz system being used as an illustrative example
in most of the discussion in this document. The advantage of co-channel dual polarization operation is that it doubles the transmission
capacity of a radio route and, therefore, defers the high cost of constructing a new transmission route.
