## How do you calculate path loss?

To calculate free space path loss for isotropic antennas, follow the given instructions:

- Take the square of the wavelength of the carrier wave.
- Multiply the distance between the transmitter and receiver antennas by 4π, and take the square of the result.
- Divide the value from step 1 with that of step 2.
- Congrats!

**What is the free space path loss formula?**

L = fspl( R , lambda ) returns the free space path loss in decibels for a waveform with wavelength lambda propagated over a distance of R meters.

### How do you calculate far field distance?

Antenna near field distance equation As we know that space around an antenna is subdivided into four regions viz. reactive near field ( up to λ), reactive radiating near field ( up to 3*λ) , radiating (fresnel) near field (up to 2*D2 /λ) and radiating far field ( >=2*D2 /λ).

**What is the path loss in satellite link?**

Path loss is a dilution of the transmitted energy as the radiated wavefront expands during its travel from transmitter antenna to receiver antenna. For example, when communicating from Earth to a geosynchronous satellite (at an altitude of 37,786 km) at S-band (∼2 GHz, λ ≈ 0.15 m), the path loss term is−190 dB.

## What is the breakpoint between near field and far field?

Radiative Near Field: This region is also known as the Fresnel Region. It is the region between the reactive near field and the far field.

**How far does the near field extend?**

approximately 3.5 m.

From Figure 1, the near field extends for approximately 3.5 m. Stores with several entry doors often have a number of RFID antennas spaced across the entry area to give complete coverage because the field intensity falls rapidly with distance from the antenna.

### Is path loss same in uplink and downlink?

The path loss depends on frequency, so higher will be frequency higher will be path loss. In the satellite system, path loss will be minimum if the uplink frequency is higher than the downlink frequency.

**What is 5dBi range?**

With this 5dBi antenna, theoretically a distance of about 500 meters can be covered.

## At what distance from the antenna does the far field start?

At what distance from the antenna does the far field start? Explanation: The far field that is approximately 10 wavelengths from the antenna is the radio wave with the composite electric and magnetic fields. For example, at 2.4 GHz, one wavelength is 984/2400 = 0.41 feet.

**What is range of near field?**

This range can be used to measure antennas up to 12 feet (3.6 m) in diameter. It can accommodate weights up to 10,000 pounds (4500 kgs). Depending upon measurement configuration, a frequency range of 1 GHz to 110 GHz can be utilized.

### How do you calculate uplink frequency and downlink frequency?

The actual frequencies (uplink and downlink) used inside the frequency range are determined by the ARFCN….Frequency Bands.

DCS 1800 | PCS 1900 | |
---|---|---|

Uplink (UL) Formula (MHz) | FUL(n) = 1710.2 + 0.2*(n-512) | FUL(n) = 1850.2 + .2*(n-512) |

Downlink (DL) Formula (MHz) | FDL(n) = FUL(n)+95 | FDL(n) = FUL(n)+80 |

**How far will a 4 dBi antenna reach?**

With the 4dBi antenna, theoretically a distance of about 300 meters can be covered. The U.S. Robotics 5dBi Swivel Antenna comes standard with the U.S. Robotics Wireless Turbo Multi-Function Access Point but can also be purchased to enhance wireless connectivity for a wide variety of wireless devices.

## How far can 10 dBi reach?

Know that on a standard-speed device, 24d dBi is 24.5km, 14 dBi is 16.9km, 12 dBi is 15.4km, 10 dBi is 14.1km and 7 dBi is 12km.

**How far can 5dBi antenna reach?**

With this 5dBi antenna, theoretically a distance of about 500 meters can be covered. As the requirement for wireless connectivity grows, companies often want to provide focused wireless coverage in large areas like auditoriums, cafeterias or even between buildings.

### How far can 12 dBi reach?

Know that on a low-speed device, 24 dBi is 26.2km, 14 dBi is 19km, 12 dBi is 17.3km, 10 dBi is 15.8km and 7 dBi is 14.1km.

**What is considered far field?**

When talking about antennas the far field is the region that is at a large distance from the antenna. In the far field the radiation pattern does not change shape as the distance increases.

## What dB means for antenna?

dB is antenna gain in decibels reference to how much times gainincrease there is with respect to 1(0dB) . dBi is antenna gain with respect to isotropic antenna. Since isotropic antenna has gain 1 ( 0 dB) thats why here dB and dBi are same. Gain of 3 dB means 2 times increase in gain.

**Are bigger antennas better?**

It’s about gain. A bigger antenna, properly designed, will always have more gain than a smaller one. And it will be the best kind of gain, much better than using a small antenna and simply overamplifying it, because a small antenna just won’t pull in truly weak signals like this gigantic one will.
