5.1) What two functions are performed by an antenna? Ans) A antenna performs two functions mainly: a)It converts radio-frequency electrical energy from the transmitter into electromagnetic energy and radiates it into surrounding environment. It helps in transmission of signal. b) It also converts impinging electromagnetic energy on antenna into radiofrequency electrical energy and feds it into receiver. It helps in reception of a signal. 5.5) What factors determine antenna gain? Ans) Antenna gain is used in deciding directionality of an antenna. It is denoted by G.

Here, G = antenna gain, Ae = effective area, f = carrier frequency, c = speed of light (3 X 108 m/s), A = carrier wavelength We can see that wavelength and effective area are the deciding factors of antenna gain. 5.6) What is the primary cause of signal loss in satellite communications? Ans)In any type of wireless communication, a transmitted signal attenuates over a distance as it is distributed over a large area. This attenuation is known by Free Space Loss. This is the primary cause of signal loss in satellite communication. 5.7) Name and briefly define four types of noise.? Ans) When a data signal is received, it contains not only transmitted signal but also additional unwanted signals introduced somewhere between transmission and reception. These unwanted signals are classified as Noise. It is divided into 4 types 1)Thermal Noise: This is mainly due to thermal agitation of electrons in electronic devices and transmission media. It is proportional to temperature. It is also known as white noise. It is expressed as N=kTB, Where N=noise, k= Boltzmann's constant = 1.38 X 10-23 J/K, T=temperature, B= bandwidth in Hz. Also N = 10 log k + 10 log T + 10 log B = -228.6 dBW + 10 log T + 10 log B 2) Intermodulation Noise: When same transmission medium is shared by different frequencies, it results in intermodulation noise. When there is nonlinearity in the transmitter, receiver, or intervening transmission system intermodulation noise is produced. Intermodulation noise produces signals at a frequency that is the sum or difference of the two original frequencies or multiples of those frequencies. 3) Crosstalk: it is an unwanted coupling between signal paths. It often occurs when electrical coupling comes into picture in between nearby twisted pairs or coax cable lines
