Exploring Radio

  • Alex Wulff


While you’re waiting to take your licensing test, you can read this chapter and complete the exercises to learn more about how radio technology can be applied in the world of digital communications. The weather satellite chapter (Chapter 4) may have been your first experience directly receiving a radio transmission, but in this chapter, you will gain a deeper insight into how radio communication also serves as a great opportunity to explore how various obstacles in the path of radio waves can affect signal quality and strength. The setup we’ll use is shown in Figure 6-1. If you have not yet purchased the materials for this chapter, now is a good time to review the list in Chapter 1 and do so.
