RF Fundamentals

In this main segment, I talk about RF Fundamentals.

There are four characteristics of RF signals and that is:

There are nine RF behaviors to know about:

  • Absorption
  • Reflection
  • Scattering
  • Refraction
  • Diffraction
  • Attenuation loss
  • Free Space Path Loss
    • Free space path loss formula

    Thanks for doing this, stumbled across it while searching for wireless podcasts. ­čÖé

    One question though; should behavior 4 be refraction instead of retraction?

      Yes you’re correct! Thanks for catching that error.
