Radio Propagation and Adaptive Antennas for Wireless Communication Links: Terrestrial, Atmospheric and Ionospheric

Buy
An exhaustive exploration of radio propagation phenomena in a range of environments

Covering the basics of wireless communication system design, Radio Propagation and Adaptive Antennas for Wireless Communication Links provides a comprehensive overview of the many different situations in the over-the-terrain, atmospheric, and ionospheric communication channels.

For each channel, authors Blaunstein and Christodoulou explain the role of various obstructions on the corresponding propagation phenomena that influence the transmission of radio signals through such communication channels, both in line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) propagation conditions along the radio path between the transmitter and the receiver antennas.

Brimming with practical applications and real-world examples, Radio Propagation and Adaptive Antennas for Wireless Communication Links explores:

  • Adaptive antennas at the link terminals, and how they can be used to minimize the deleterious effects of obstructions
  • Relevant topics in radio propagation in various media and their applications in smart communication networks
  • Multipath phenomena, path loss, large-scale or slow fading, and short-scale or fast fading
  • Free-space propagation; propagation above the irregular terrain, in the inhomogeneous and stratified atmosphere and ionosphere; the reflection and diffraction by various obstructions, regularly or randomly distributed in an area of communication

Written for practicing engineers working in communications, antennas, and propagation, Radio Propagation and Adaptive Antennas for Wireless Communication Links provides complete and thorough coverage of every topic related to the design of wireless communication systems.

Many Ways to Be Deaf: International Variation in Deaf Communities
Many Ways to Be Deaf: International Variation in Deaf Communities

The core arguments of this book’s chapters were written before September 11, 2001. This preface was written shortly afterwards. For us, the tragedy of 9–11 makes an international perspective even more important than before, and that perspective is exactly what this book provides. Deaf communities, like all communities, have...
