At low PRF, mainlobe clutter may largely be eliminated by offsetting the Doppler spectrum so the central line is at dc and passing the return through a clutter canceller and bank of Doppler filters. To keep the clutter in the canceller's rejection notches, the 'offset' must be varied with radar speed and antenna look angle.
