Wireless Communication In cellular communication systems, signals are transmitted via elec- tromagnetic (E/M) waves. mic amp E/M wave amp speaker For efficient transmission and reception, antenna length should be one-quarter of the wavelength. Telephone-quality speech contains frequencies from 200 to 3000 Hz. How long should the antenna be?

Check Yourself For efficient transmission and reception, the antenna length should be comparable to one-quarter of the wavelength. Telephone-quality speech contains frequencies between 200 Hz and 3000 Hz. How long should the antenna be? 0. 4 m 1. 40 m 2. 400 m 3. 4 km 4. 40 km 5. 400 km

Check Yourself The wavelength is λ = c f so the lowest frequencies ( 200 Hz) produce the longest wavelengths λ = c f = 3 × 10 8 m/s 200 Hz = 1 . 5 × 10 6 m = 1500 km . Therefore the antenna length should be on the order of λ 4 = 1500 km 4 400 km 250 miles .
