SECTION-B

11. A plane wave is incident on a short dipole with same polarization and current on the dipole

is assumed constant and in phase over its entire length and the terminating resistance RT is

assumed equai to the dipole radiation resistance Rr. the antenna loss resistance is assumed

equal to zero. What is a) the dipole's maximum effective aperture and b) its directivity?

12. Calculate the exact directivity of a unidirectional antenna if the normalized power pattern is

given by a) Pn = cos b) Pn = sin2 . in all cases these patterns are unidirectional ( in + Z

direction) with having Pn having a value only for Zenith angle 0 90 and with Pn = 0

for 90 180. The patterns are independent of the azimuth angle .

13. Derive an expression for E() for an array of two identical (non-isotropic) out of phase

point sources separated by a distance of d = /2, each source having normalized field

pattern in the plane is given by sin . Also plot, approximately, normalized filed pattern.

14. Calculate the gain, FNBW and HPBW of parabolic reflector antenna which is operating at

10 GHz and diameter of its circular aperture is 6 .

15. The refractive index of an ionospheric layer is 0.8 and MUF is 9 MHz. If the height of the

ionospheric layer is 400 km above the earth's surface, then find out the maximum electron

density, critical frequency and distance between transmitter and receiver assuming that

earth's surface is flat.

SECTION-C

16. Derive the expressions for maxima, minima, FNBW and directivity of N-elements Uniform

linear end fire array.

17. Derive the fields radiated from a short electric dipole with linear current distribution over

its length.

18. Write short notes on following :

a. Maximum usable frequency

b. Tropospheric propagation

.

NOTE : Disclosure of Identity by writing Mobile No. or Making of passing request on any

page of Answer Sheet will lead to UMC against the Student.
