The field of radio communications continues to change rapidly, and the second edition of this outstanding book, based on a popular IEE Vacation School, has been fully updated to reflect the latest developments. The introduction of new services and the proliferation of mobile communications have produced a growing need for wider bandwidths and the consequent need for frequency reuse. This book introduces the basic concepts and mechanisms of radiowave propogation engineering in both the troposphere and ionosphere, and includes greater emphasis on the needs of digital technologies and new kinds of radio systems. The content reflects the wide experience of an exceptional group of authors and the emphasis throughout is on modelling and prediction methods and the relevant ITU Radiocommunication Sector recommendations. Propagation of Radiowaves, 2nd Edition is essential reading for professionals involved in planning, designing and operating radio systems, as well as postgraduate students in the field.

Les Barclay

Les Barclay OBE is a consultant in radiowave propagation and spectrum management. He is also visiting professor at the universities of Lancaster, Surrey and Bradford, where he lectures in radio regulation, spectrum management and propogation. He has been involved in the organisation and lecturing for all IEE residential courses in radiowave propagation, and has latterly chaired the organizing committee for these courses Prior to this, he was the deputy director at the Radiocommunications Agency, responsible for research. He also acted as international chairman of ITU-Study Group 3 on radiowave propagation and chairman on the IEE professional groups on antennas and propagation, as well as on radiocommunications. He is a Fellow of both the Royal Academy of Engineering and the IEE.
