  • Author: Tam Chau

There are several factors that should be considered to ensure good wireless communication. Some of these factors include line-of-sight, height & distance between antennas, curvature of the earth, and the Fresnel zone.Line-of-sight is an important factor that affects radio frequency links. This is because barriers such as buildings tress, and even hills can block some of the transmitted signal or produce multi-path reflections which attenuate the strength and quality of the signals being received. In general, installing RF antennas well above ground will provide best free space and best performance. However, it’s best to practice use the Fresnel Zone to calculate optimum height for transmitter and receiver antennas.
