Chapter 9

Wave Propagation

“The wave propagation characteristics between transmitter and receiver are controlled by the transmitting antenna, operating frequencies and media between them.”

CHAPTER OBJECTIVES

This chapter discusses

  • Different methods of wave propagation between transmitter and receiver
  • Merits and demerits of each method
  • Characteristics of Ground, Tropospheric and Ionospheric propagation
  • Field strength estimation in each method
  • The losses and attenuation
  • Objective questions and solved problems useful for class tests, final examinations and also for competitive examinations
  • Exercise problems to develop self problem solving skills

When Electromagnetic (EM) waves carrying information are generated by the transmitting antenna, ...
