High peak-to-average power ratios (PAPRs) are not beneficial as they challenge the non-linear power amplifier operation close to compression in order to reach maximum efficiency. Possible solutions for include crest factor reductions (CFR), such as clipping high signal peaks. This video demonstrates a simple technique to clip any waveform, including the Verizon Wireless 5GTF signal, with the use of software tools for signal generation and analysis.
