off-the-air monitoring
In radio net operations, the listening, by the net-control station, to the transmissions of stations in the net, particularly to check the quality of their transmissions. Note: Off-the-air monitoring is usually performed during periods when the net-control station is not transmitting. 2. The listening, by a radio station, to its own transmissions by receiving the signal that has been transmitted by the transmitting antenna, to discover the quality of the signal being transmitted to other stations or being broadcast. Note: In off-the-air monitoring, the received signal must have traveled through the air a reasonable distance from the transmitting antenna and not be a signal that is tapped on its way to the transmitting antenna internal to the station or in the antenna transmission line, i.e., the feeder. The monitoring distance should be such that direct inductive or capacitive coupling between the transmitting antenna and monitor antenna does not occur. [From Weik '89]
