Why we use 50MHz as a reference?

Hi,

Why in measuring RF power, a commonly used reference is 50MHz? Why not 100MHz or 60MHz or 55MHz?

Thanks.

It is related to efficiency of the RF system.

For 50Ohm, it is balance the power efficiency in RF circuit and radiation efficiency in antenna.

Thanks for the replies, but I think the question is why 50MHz instead of why 50 Ohms.

in architecture such as integer-n fhss (i.e. bluetooth), Fref must be equal to channel spacing (i.e. 1MHz), right?

(how) does this requirement differ for fractional n Σ-Δ?
