COURSE Code: WLS. 501
This course introduces the air interface between the transmitter and the receiver in a communications system. The frequency spectrum is broken up into bands of operation. Transmission line parameters are studied in order to make a sensible selection of transmission line to conduct power to the antenna with maximum efficiency. Antennas are studied with the aim of directing the signal into specific directions in a communication link. Propagation of electromagnetic radiation is studied in order to predict proper operation of a system under varying conditions, frequency and distance.
