Part 2: Wave Propagation   1                                                                                

Fundamental  equations  for  free  space  propagation,  Friis  Transmission  equation.  Attenuation  over reflecting  surface,  Effect  of  earth‟s  curvature.  Ground,  sky  &  space  wave  propagations.  Structure of  atmosphere.  Characteristics  of  ionized  regions.  Effects  of  earth‟s  magnetic  field.  Virtual height,  MUF,  Skip  distance.  Ionospheric  abnormalities.  Multi-hoppropagation.  Space  link geometry.    Characteristics  of  Wireless  Channel:  Fading,  Multipath  delay  spread,  Coherence Bandwidth, and Coherence  Time.

Part 3: Wave Propagation   2                                                                             

Characteristics  of  Wireless  Channel:  Fading,  Multipath  delay  spread,  Coherence Bandwidth, and Coherence  Time. Fast Fading and Slow Fading which can be charachterized by various distributions such as Rician, Rayleigh, Nakagami. 

Part 4: Communication aspects 

The goal is for the student to have sufficient knowledge regarding analog communication systems so that they are prepared for their next step towards a thorough understanding of Digital Communication Systems.
