ETL Systems, a designer and manufacturer of RF signal distribution equipment for satellite communications, is showcasing its range of RF equipment at Satellite 2019, in Washington DC.Products on display at ETL Systems booth include the new StingRay DWDM Fibre solution, which enables high-quality signal distribution between a satellite antenna and a remote control room. With the challenge of rain attenuation, there is a growing need to send RF signals over fibre across large distances without losing signal. ETL’s DWDM solution ensures multiple signals can be transmitted and received over distances of up to 100s of kilometers through a single fibre cable.ETL is also demonstrating the recently launched 4th generation Enigma Switch Matrix for routing L-band signals. The Enigma Matrix range provides signal distribution for up to 32 input and output feeds for downlinking and uplinking signal management. The latest models offer better linearity, improved noise figure, frequency response and isolation. For easy implementation, the matrices can be expanded or used to expand existing systems by adding additional matrix modules and system splitters or combiners.Additionally, ETL Systems is showcasing its range of waveguide components at the Satellite 2019 event. ETL’s waveguide components deliver low signal loss and high-power handling, ensuring robust and reliable transmission via uplinks and downlinks. The high precision components are available as flex, twist, bend, adaptors, couplers, pressure windows and straights, resulting in the successful guiding of waves around potential obstacles.Atlantic Microwave, the company which was recently acquired by ETL Systems is also at the show. The recent acquisition allows both ETL Systems and Atlantic Microwave to offer an extended range of RF equipment and components to customers.

ASUNCION, (Reuters) – Former Brazilian international Ronaldinho Gaucho was ordered to remain in jail in Paraguay yesterday after a judge ruled him a flight risk. The ex-Barcelona forward was arrested on Friday for attempting to enter Paraguay with a false passport two days earlier and spent Friday night in a police cell along with his brother and business manager Roberto Assis.The pair asked to be released into house arrest but that was rejected by the judge, who also dismissed Assis’s claims to have a heart problem because he showed no proof.Judge Clara Ruiz Diaz said their alleged offence was a “serious one against the interests of the Paraguayan state”. Because the pair posed a flight risk they must remain in custody, she added.Under Paraguayan law, officials now have six months to complete their investigation but Ronaldinho’s lawyers, who called the decision “incredible,” are expected to present an appeal in the coming days.“He (Ronaldinho) doesn’t understand what’s going on,” Tarek Tuma told reporters. Yesterday’s courtroom drama came after an astonishing four days that began on Wednesday when the duo attempted to enter Paraguay with doctored passports.They were detained but a prosecutor who believed they were tricked into taking the fake documents recommended they be released after receiving an alternative punishment such as paying a fine to charity.A judge, though, rejected that idea late on Friday and shortly afterwards the pair was arrested. A police official told local media the pair had been placed in a cell with one other inmate. They were given soap, cushions and repellent to protect against mosquitoes.Although workers at the facility took selfies with the famous detainee, officials said the Brazilians did not receive any preferential treatment.Paraguayan television showed the two men arriving in court in handcuffs at around noon local time yesterday. The brothers were invited to Paraguay by a local casino owner and had arrived on Wednesday to take part in a soccer clinic for children and a book launch.Although he last played professionally in 2015, Ronaldinho, who also represented Brazilian clubs Atletico Mineiro, Flamengo and Fluminense, is still hugely popular with global football fans for his skills and showmanship.The 39-year-old was named FIFA world player of the year in 2004 and 2005 and won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002 and the Champions League with Barcelona in 2006.
