Microwave Radio Systems
A microwave radio works on the principle of sending signals across the atmosphere
in between towers placed several miles apart. The basic function of each tower
is to simply amplify and retransmit this signal at each repeater point it passes
through before reaching the intended destination. Radios based on the microwave
principal operate at the higher frequency part in the spectrum.
Atmospheric changes affect these waves and tend to cause some distress to radio
services based on the aforementioned system. Temperature changes and moisture
in the atmosphere can facilitate fading in the radio signal. On the other hand
a big advantage of the microwave radio system is that it carries up to thousands
of proper voice channels in the absence of physically connected wires between
two or more areas.
Furthermore radio-overcome problems caused by mountains, water, and terrains
that pose stumbling blocks to proper installation of cables.
Microwave radio transmissions pose fears of containing harmful radiations that
can damage human health. However that is a fear that was dealt with already
by the use of low intensity waves for transmission.
In most cases it forms a rather effective means of communication particularly
during natural disaster situations when communication is paramount and yet is
most difficult to execute.
In such a situation it is more than handy to know in some detail the uses and
applications of this system for it may come to use more frequently than one
We are here to do just that. We provide information on microwave radio systems,
their current uses, their advantages and disadvantages, their possible uses
in the near future and much more. We keep you updated on developments with regards
to the technology mentioned.
In short this is one place where you can find out almost anything about microwave
