The objective of this study is to develop a statistical model to calculate the effectiveness of an airborne jammer on analog communication and broadcast receivers, such as AM and FM Broadcast Radio and Television receivers. During the development the required power margin in dB, or equivalently, the required linear ratio, between the jammer power and the carrier power at the target receiver input was first determined. Subsequently, using probabilities that the jammer power will exceed the target signal's carrier power, the required power margin was calculated. This power margin was determined by statistical techniques to predict the propagation characteristics of communication and broadcast signals, such as Log-Normal Shadowing, and Small-Scale Fading. From the model, it was determined that it is difficult to achieve high probabilities of exceeding the required jamming margins with a single jammer. Hence, the use of spatial diversity jamming is recommended, that is, using two or more jammers spaced sufficiently far apart from each other, such that their jamming signals at the targeted area are de-correlated due to the differences in their respective angles of arrival.
