2 Radiation Patterns Radiation pattern Graphical representation of radiation properties of an antenna Depicted as two-dimensional cross section Reception pattern Receiving antenna’s equivalent to radiation pattern Antenna Gain Antenna gain Power output, in a particular direction, compared to that produced in any direction by a perfect omnidirectional antenna (isotropic antenna) Effective area Related to physical size and shape of antenna Antenna Gain Relationship between antenna gain and effective area G = antenna gain A e = effective area f = carrier frequency • c = speed of light  3 10 8 m/s) = carrier wavelength 2 2 2 4 4 c A f A G e e Propagation Modes Ground-wave propagation Sky-wave propagation Line-of-sight propagation
