RF signal modulated according to a GSMsignal with a single active slot, that is the transmission frame for the GSM upload
wire patch cell
two wire patch cells, each placed in a Faraday cage inside an CO2 incubator; absorbent material placed along the side walls of the cage; power cable inside the incubator shielded with an aluminum sheet; wire patch cell consisting of two square 15 cm x 15 cm plates, spaced 2.9 cm apart and using four metallic grounding contacts, located at each corner; coaxial cable placed in the center of the wire patch cell that connects the ground plate with the roof plate; E-field with dominant vertical component, polarized in z direction, orthogonal to the metallic plates; H-field with only longitudinal component; cells placed in eight 35 mm (diameter) Petri dishes which were placed in 50 mm diameter dishes in the wire patch cell
