Software radio ideally provides the opportunity to communicate withany radio communication standard by modifying only the software,without any modification to hardware components. However, takinginto account the static behavior of current communicationsprotocols, the spectrum efficiency optimization, and flexibility,the radio domain has become an important factor. From this thinking appeared the cognitive radio paradigm. Thisevolution is today inescapable in the modern radio communicationworld. It provides an autonomous behavior to the equipment andtherefore the adaptation of communication parameters to bettermatch their needs. This collective work provides engineers, researchers and radiodesigners with the necessary information from mathematical analysisand hardware architectures to design methodology and tools, runningplatforms and standardization in order to understand this newcognitive radio domain.

The book introduces the basic foundations of high mathematics and vector algebra. Then, it explains the basic aspects of classical electrodynamics and electromagnetism. Based on such knowledge readers investigate various radio propagation problems related to guiding structures connecting electronic devices with antenna terminals placed at the different radar systems. It explains the role of antennas in process of transmission of radio signals between the terminals. Finally, it shows the relation between the main operational charactistics of each kind of radar and the corresponding knowledge obtained from the previous chapters.

Handbook for Radio Engineering Managers deals with management, organization, engineering economy, safety practices, fires, environmental aspects, specifications, and contract administration of projects. The text explains project management concerning initiation of the planning and design stages, establishment of controls, staffing supervision, installation work, commissioning, and turnover to the operating and maintenance staff. Engineering economy involves cost/benefit analysis, preparation of budget for new installations, maintenance, and repairs. The book also discusses safety practices such as staff responsibilities, aid facilities, electrical or radio equipment, radiation hazards, maintenance of mast and towers. The text discusses fires in radio installations, fire detecting facilities, transformer problems, lighting hazards, and electric shock hazards. The environmental aspects in radio engineering include equipment or materials performance, corrosion, structural failures, environmental obligations in mast or tower design, as well as radio frequency spectrum management. The radio engineering manager should also be knowledgeable regarding specifications and contract administration covering radio engineering specifications, inspection, acceptance tests, and contract administration. The methods and practices explained in the book are applicable for large, medium, or small sized stations or project. The book is a useful reference for radio station managers, radio station technicians, radio engineers, electrical engineers, and for administrators of radio stations or other communications facilities.

Electromagnetic Waves, Volume 14: VLF Radio Engineering provides a detailed coverage of the fields involved in very low frequency (VLF) radio engineering. This book serves as a guide for applying the information in the solution of practical problems. Comprised of seven chapters, this volume starts with an overview of the communications aspect following the flow of information carrying energy from the transmitting to receiving locations. This text then presents the complete systems that consider the interrelationship of the various factors. Other chapters explain the basic concept of a VLF antenna, which is a vertical electric monopole over a perfectly conducting flat plane. This book discusses as well the radio wave propagation at VLF, which has been studied theoretically and experimentally for many years. The final chapter deals with the primary components of a complete VLF radio system. This book is a valuable resource for radio engineers, scientists, and researchers.

PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...
