In geographical regions poorly served by land-lines or line-of-sight repeaters, high-frequency (HF) radio can still provide a low-cost alternative to satellite links. In particular, the near vertical incidence sky-wave (NVIS) propagation mode gives omnidirectional coverage from a central site; 300 km ranges are possible and the technique has an inherent ability to fill in `blind spots' lying in hi...

Multimode, multiband transceivers were once seen as a desirable but unachievable goal, particularly when considering small, battery-powered terminals. There are, however, significant market-pulls requiring just such a device and dual-mode systems (albeit with largely separate hardware) are now a reality. The next revolution will be the production of so-called flexible architecture terminals, in wh... View full abstract»

Spatial filtering using adaptive or smart antennas has emerged as a promising technique to improve the performance of cellular mobile systems. This paper presents an overview of smart antennas in terms of key characteristics, options, challenges and benefits, in the context of current, but also with a view towards future, generation personal communication systems View full abstract»
Aims & Scope
Published from 1989-2002, the Electronics & Communication Engineering Journal aimed to inform practising professional engineers who were involved in electronics and communications by providing coverage of new developments in a serious technical, but not in an overformal or academic manner.
Topics covered included: Measurement and instrumentation; circuit design, simulation and CAD; signal and image processing, coding; microwaves, antennas and radio propagation; optoelectronics; TV and sound broadcasting; telecommunication networks; radio and satellite communications; radar, sonar and navigation systems; and electromagnetic compatibility.
