If you need to maximize efficiency in wireless network planning, an understanding of radio propagation issues is vital, and this 2007 reference guide is for you. Using real-world case studies, practical problems and minimum mathematics, the author explains simply and clearly how to predict signal strengths in a variety of situations. Fundamentals are explained in the context of their practical significance. Applications, including point-to-point radio links, broadcasting and earth-space communications, are thoroughly treated, and more sophisticated methods, which form the basis of software tools for both network planning and spectrum management, are also described. For a rapid understanding and insight into radio propagation, sufficient to enable you to undertake real-world engineering tasks, this concise book is invaluable for network planners, hardware designers, spectrum managers, senior technical managers and policy makers who are either new to radio propagation or who need a quick reference guide.Thus we can estimate that the gain of an antenna with a beamwidth of 3 degrees is 37.7dBi. ... In order to answer this question, we need to accept a crucial fact about the isotropic antenna. ... metres: Ad1:13A 4pf2 f2 1a4 The gain of an antenna is numerically equal to its effective aperture expressed as a multiple of the effectiveanbsp;...
