AbstractNovel RF circuitry for selecting the stronger of two telemetry signals (RHCP or LHCP) is presented. Polarization diversity capability with uninterrupted data flow can be achieved without using two expensive single channel data receivers and a diversity combiner. In certain dedicated systems only a single AM/FM receiver is required. This paper describes the RF signal processing and logic circuitry of a developed system and describes how it is applied in a lightweight polarization diversity single channel monopulse tracking system.
