The goal of the course is to provide basic knowledge of the wireless transmission in real environments for specific applications, namely for the needs of the planning of wireless radio links. The key topics include: the wireless transmission, the link budget for various types of radio links, antenna parameters, basic types and applications of antennas, propagation of radio waves in the atmosphere for specific frequency bands and telecommunication services, propagation models for planning of fixed an mobile links for both terrestrial and satellite services, the interference and frequency planning, basics of cellular networks, ITU-R recommendations.
