Which of the following frequencies will be suitable for beyond-the-horizon communication using sky waves?
Forbeyond-the-horizon communication, it is necessary for the signal waves to travel a large distance. 10 KHz signals cannot be radiated efficiently because of the antenna size. The high energy signal waves (1GHz - 1000 GHz) penetrate the ionosphere. 10 MHz frequencies get reflected easily from the ionosphere. Hence, signal waves of such frequencies are suitable for beyond-the-horizon communication.
Frequencies in the UHF range normally propagate by means of:
Owing to its high frequency, an ultra high frequency (UHF)wave can neither travel along the trajectory of the ground nor can it get reflected by the ionosphere. The signals having UHF are propagated through line-of-sight communication, which is nothing but space wave propagation.
(i) Do not provide a continuous set of values,
(ii) Represent values as discrete steps,
(iii) Can utilize binary system, and
(iv) Can utilize decimal as well as binary systems.
Which of the above statements are true?
(a) (i) and (ii) only
(b) (ii) and (iii) only
(c) (i), (ii) and (iii) but not (iv)
(d) All of (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv).
A digital signal usesthe binary (0 and 1) system for transferring message signals. Such a system cannot utilise the decimal system (which corresponds to analogue signals). Digital signals represent discontinuous values.
Q4 : Is it necessary for a transmitting antenna to be at the same height
Line-of-sight communication means that there is no physical obstruction between the transmitter and the receiver. In such communications it is not necessary for the transmitting and receiving antennas to be at the same height.
Height of the given antenna,h= 81 m
Radius of earth,R= 6.4x 106m
For range,d= (2Rh)½, the service area of the antenna is given by the relation:
= 3.14x 2x 6.4x 106x 81
= 3255.55x 106m2
∝¼ 3256 km2
Q5 : A carrier wave of peak voltage 12
Amplitude of the carrier wave,Ac= 12 V
Modulation index,m= 75% = 0.75
Amplitude of the modulating wave =Am
Using the relationfor modulation index:
A modulating signal is a square wave, as shown in Fig. 15.14.
The carrier wave is given by
(i)Sketch the amplitude modulated waveform
(ii)What is the modulation index?
It can be observed from the given modulating signal thatthe amplitude of the modulating signal,Am= 1 V
It is given that the carrier wavec(t) = 2 sin (8πt)
∴Amplitude of the carrier wave,Ac= 2 V
Time period ofthe modulating signalTm= 1 s
The angular frequency of the modulating signal is calculated as:
The angular frequency of the carrier signal is calculated as:
From equations(i) and (ii), we get:
The amplitude modulated waveform of the modulating signal is shown in the following figure.
