A crystal video receiver has relatively low sensitivity and dynamic range. It does not have fine frequency measurement capacity. However, due to its simplicity in structure, it is often used as a warning receiver such as that used in an automobile to detect traffic radar. Due to its small volume and relatively low cost, it is sometimes used as an AOA measurement system in conjunction with other EW receivers.
