Front Cover
Wiley, May 14, 1987 - Technology & Engineering - 560 pages
0 Reviews
Presents essential design techniques for radiolinks in the point-to-point service operating range of 1-100 GHz. Treats the general propagation in this frequency range, the line-of-sight microwave/millimeter links, troposcatter/diffraction, and both analog and digital satellite systems. Text explains how radiolinks operate, how to size or dimension terminals and ancillary subsystems, and how to select the necessary performance parameters and equipment specifications to meet the needs of various customers. The seven chapters are organized progressively, each forming a background for subsequent chapters. Topics covered include radio propagation 1-100 GHz, line-of-sight radiolinks, over-the-horizon radiolinks, satellite communications analog systems, digital communications by satellite, system design above 10 GHz, and a system approach to radio terminal design.

About the author (1987)

Born in New York City, Roger Freeman is a widely known telecommunications engineer, educator, and author of several handbooks and manuals for students and telecommunications engineers. From 1948 until 1951, Freeman attended Northeastern University. He dropped out to work as a radio officer with the Military Sea Transportation Service and was stationed in Brooklyn, New York (1952-59). In 1959 he went to work as an engineer for Bendix Radio in Spain, where he remained until 1962. He spent the next 16 years as a research engineer and technical director for International Telephone and Telegraph Communications Systems (ITT). While working for ITT, Freeman earned a B.A. (1966) and an M.A. (1973) in electrical engineering from New York University. Since 1978 he has been senior principal engineer and program manager of the equipment division at the Raytheon Company of Sudbury, Massachusetts, as well as faculty member of Northeastern University.
