Introduction to Radiowaves Propagation -- Antenna and Passive Reflectors -- Radiowave Propagation in Satelliet Communication -- Wireless Broadcasting -- Trans-horizon Radiowaves Propagation -- Propagation of Radar Waves -- Short Range Radio Communications -- Noise in Radiowave Propagation -- Improvement Techniques in Radiowave Reception.
Propagation Engineering in Radio Link Design covers the basic principles of radiowaves propagation in a practical manner. This fundamental understanding enables the readers to design radio links efficiently. This book elaborates on new achievements as well as recently developed propagation models. This is in addition to a comprehensive overview of fundamentals of propagation in various scenarios. It examines theoretical calculations, approaches and applied procedures needed for radio links design. The authors study and analysis of the main propagation phenomena and its mechanisms based on the recommendations of International Telecommunications Union, (ITU). The book has been organized in 9 chapters and examines the role of antennas and passive reflectors in radio services, propagation mechanisms related to radar, satellite, short distance, broadcasting and trans-horizon radio links, with two chapters devoted to radio noise and main parameters of radio link design. The book presents some 278 illustrations, 50 tables, 110 solved examples, 200 questions and 170 problems.
