- The radio channels of different radio systems.
- Characterization of radio waves and propagation media.
- Different mechanisms of radio wave propagation: direct free-space propagation, absorption, scattering, reflection, refraction, diffraction, surface and ground waves, ionospheric waves and multipath propagation.
- Statistical description of fading radio channel.
- Principles of the radio channel modelling.
- Noise calculations.
- Radio wave propagation phenomena over fixed terrestrial, ionospheric and satellite links.
- Radio channel modelling for outdoor mobile systems.
- Radio wave propagation inside or into buildings.
- Radio channels of mobile satellite links.
- Slow fading.
- Multipath propagation and its effects on narrowband and wideband radio channels.
- MIMO radio channels.
- Measurement methods of radio channels.
- Atmospheric attenuation on terahertz frequency bands.
After completing the course, the student
- will be able to define what the radio channel is and is able to distinguish it into modellable parts,
- knows different radio wave propagation mechanisms,
- can apply physical and empirical radio channel models,
- is able to analyse which are the dominating propagation mechanisms in different environments, and
- will know how to measure the properties of different radio channels.
- Lecture notes.
