0 Reviews
Covering a wide range of application areas, from wireless communications and navigation, to sensors and radar, this practical resource offers you the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of radio engineering. You learn important techniques to help you with the generation, control, detection and utilization of radio waves, and find detailed guidance in radio link, amplifier, and antenna design. The book approaches relevant problems from both electromagnetic theory based on MaxwellOCOs equations and circuit theory based on KirchoffOCOs and OhmOCOs laws, including brief introductions to each theory."

Page 1 - Radio waves are made up of. both electric and magnetic fields which are perpendicular to each other and to the direction of propagation. The classification of polarization is determined by the plane in which the electric component lies: If the plane of the electric component is vertical, the polarization is vertical; if horizontal, the polarization is horizontal. In the case where components exist in both the vertical and horizontal planes...
