A23. A zone of silence between the ground wave and sky wave where there is no reception.
A24. Where ionization density is greatest.
A25. A term used to describe the multiple pattern a radio wave may follow.
A26. Selective fading.
A27. Natural and man-made interference.
A30. (a) filtering and shielding of the transmitter(b) limiting bandwidth(c) cutting the
antenna to the correct frequency
A31. (a) physical separation of the antenna(b) limiting bandwidth of the
antenna(c) use of
A32. Regular and irregular variations.
A33. Regular variations can be predicted but irregular variations are unpredictable.
A34. Daily, seasonal, 11-year, and 27-days variation.
A35. Sporadic E, sudden disturbances, and ionospheric storms.
A36. Muf is maximum usable frequency. Luf is lowest usable frequency. Fot is commonly
known as optimum working frequency.
A37. Muf is highest around noon. Ultraviolet lightwaves from the sun are most intense.
A38. When luf is too low it is absorbed and is too weak for reception.
A39. Signal-to-noise ratio is low and the probability of multipath propagation is greater.
A40. Frequent signal fading and dropouts.
A41. Fot is the most practical operating frequency that can be relied on to avoid problems
of multipath, absorbtion, and noise.
A42. They can cause attenuation by scattering.
A43. It can cause attenuation by absorbtion.
A44. It is a condition where layers of warm air are formed above layers of cool air.
A45. It can cause vhf and uhf transmission to be propagated far beyond normal
A47. Vhf and above.
A48. Near the mid-point between the transmitting and receiving antennas, just above the
