Successful system design is heavily dependent on the designer’s understanding of the channel and its properties. Tait Principal Engineer Ian Graham continues his radio theory series with examples of channel properties that are critical to overall RF system design.

In a radio system, there may be large distances (including hills, forests, buildings etc) between the transmit and the receive antennas. This is the channel, the medium over which we propagate the signal from the transmitter to the receiver. Here we look at nine key channel properties that... Continue Reading
