1-65) overestimates the received power when the receiving antenna height is less than 30 m and a more correct model modifies the exponent of hR [11, p. 38]: h2T hCR (1-66) d4 Below 10 m, C = 1 and the exponent varies linearly between 10 and 30 m: C = hR /20 + 12 . On a narrow-beam terrestrial propagation path, scattering from an object along a path an odd multiple of λ/2 produces a signal that reduces the main path signal. Given an obstacle at a distance h radial from the direct ray path and located dT from the transmitter and a distance dR from the receiving antenna, we determine the differential path length as Prec = PT GT GR = λ h2 dT + dR =n 2 dT dR 2 or clearance height h = nλdT dR dT + dR (1-67) We call these Fresnel clearance zones of order n.

This division corresponds to Ludwig’s third definition of crosspolarization [8]. 3 Relations Between Bases In problems with antennas at arbitrary orientations, circularly polarized components have an advantage over linear components. When the coordinate system is rotated, both the amplitude and phase change for ρˆL , the linear polarization ratio, whereas the circular polarization ratio ρˆc magnitude is constant under rotations and only the phase changes. In other words, the ratio of the diameters of the circles (Figure 1-4) is constant.
