block upconverter

Physics; Microwave

A block upconverter (BUC) is a device that converts a band of frequencies from a lower frequency to a higher frequency such as those used in the transmission (uplink) of satellite signals. Modern ...

over-horizon microwave radio relay

Physics; Microwave

Unlike standard microwave radio relay links, the sending and receiving antennas do not use a line of sight transmission path in an over-horizon microwave radio relay. Instead, the stray signal ...

microwave link

Physics; Microwave

A microwave link is a communications technology that uses a beam of radio waves in the microwave frequency range to transmit video, audio, or data between two locations, which can be from just a few ...

microwave radio relay

Physics; Microwave

Microwave radio relay is a technology for transmitting digital and analog signals, such as long-distance telephone calls, television programs, and computer data, between two locations on a line of ...

microwave auditory effect

Physics; Microwave

The microwave auditory effect, also known as the microwave hearing effect or the Frey effect, consists of audible clicks (or, with modulation, whole words) induced by pulsed/modulated microwave ...

microwave transmission

Physics; Microwave

Microwave transmission is a technology of transmitting information or energy using radio waves whose wavelengths are conveniently measured in small numbers of centimeters or microwaves. Microwaves ...

arabolic microwave antenna

Physics; Microwave

The parabolic microwave antenna is a device that is used to direct microwaves in narrow beams for point-to-point communication links or radiolocation (radar). This is an antenna that uses a parabolic ...
