Abstract:

This thesis presents the fundamental communication transmission principles which define the performance characteristics of the transmission channel. The subject matter is divided into three categories 1 antennas, 2 transmission lines, and 3waveguides. The scope of the presentation is results oriented rather than the traditional theorem and proof approach. While the results are quantitative in nature, consideration of the underlying principles as well as the advantages and disadvantages associated with each transmission channel are presented. Although technical factors are often the basis upon which decisions regarding communication systems are made, it is evident that the telecommunication systems manager must understand the fundamental principles of the transmission channel in order to effect viable solutions to telecommunications management problems.
