Abstract: This report is the third in a continuing series devoted to the development of analytically tractable, statistical-physical models of man-made and natural electromagnetic interference. Here, the first-order statistical probability densities (PDFs) and the associated exceedance probabilities (PDs or APDs) are obtained for the instantaneous amplitudes (X), and instantaneous magnitudes, |X|, of Class B noise. There are needed not only for experimental studies but, also, particularly for the analysis and evaluation of the performance of optimum and suboptimum receivers in Class B interference environments.

Keywords: man-made noise; interference models; natural noise; probabilistic noise models
