Routine training for anyone seeking employment with the military, law enforcement or the public works sector needs to encompass basic RF Fundamentals training. Training must be able to be undertaken by those who have no previous understanding of the technology and its applications. To understand the theory and practical implications of the theories and designs that are covered in the various modules of the RF Fundamentals course, a fundamental understanding of radio waves and their application is essential. As well as learning to set up simple circuits using common and easily accessible equipment, a candidate should also learn how to analyse and evaluate such designs. Learning how to test the performance of communications systems and communications equipment is important in ensuring that these devices are effective for their intended purposes.
- RF FUNDAMENTAL – RADIO FREQUENCY This is the first module in a series of RF Fundamentals training that will be delivered regularly. This module covers the subject of Radio Frequency. This is an important consideration, as understanding and regulating radiofrequency is essential for the operation and maintenance of mobile and wireless communication systems and devices. A fundamental understanding of the characteristics of radio frequencies enables professionals to design and implement appropriate solutions for both commercial and residential users.
- RF IMPLANTATION – BEST CHOICE FOR EMISSIONS This module explores the subject of Microwave Amplification. It covers three major factors that need to be considered when designing a microwave transmitter: gain, emission and frequency stability. The best choice for a particular application will be dependent on the requirements of the application and the ability of the transmitter to cope with power constraints. It also examines some of the characteristics of microwaves and describes why they are the preferred transmission method for certain applications.
- RF POWER SUPPLY – AN Overview Of RF Power, Part One RF Power supplies come in two forms: passive and active. Part one of this course focuses on RF power supply principles. This includes basics like the difference between electromagnetic and electric beams, and how to install the necessary components. The subsequent modules discuss operation, frequency stability, and power supply operation. Part two will examine various techniques for providing power from a source other than the battery.
- RF ANGLES – AN Overview Of The Aerial Network This is a brief module covering basic concepts used in aerial and satellite communications. The subject of antennas follows. This is important because antennas affect how the signals are transmitted and received by the receiving equipment. antennas can be used as part of the transmitters or receivers themselves, or they can be used passively, which means they just receive the signals without any action on their part. This module assumes that the reader has already some working knowledge of rf fundamentals. It also assumes that the reader has a working understanding of basic satellite and aeronautical technologies.
- FM RADIO – An Overview Of How To Operate RF Phones This module is intended to cover operating the basic components associated with radiofrequency transmissions. This includes identifying, grounding, and selecting a frequency. Also covered is discussing wavelength and power levels for various operations, including power levels needed for cell phones and small household appliances. This module assumes that the reader already has a working knowledge of rf fundamentals. It also assumes that the reader already knows about antenna theory and basic propagation techniques.
- WAX (Wide Area X Television) FCC Rules And Regulations – Part 2 – General Information This module provides the basics of how the television station spectrum is managed by the FCC and provides an overview of the various channels and services associated with the FCC’s airwaves. It also goes into detailed information on how to read FCC rules and regulations and explains how stations receive their feeds and transmit their signals to viewers. This module is suitable for those who already know a little about rf fundamentals, but who may be uncertain about whether or not they should purchase a license for their TV station. The information presented in this module may be used for determining whether a license is right for one’s station. This module is recommended for those who are pursuing a career in the field as a media reporter.
The final course in our RF Basics For Beginners training series focuses on RF wave propagation. This module discusses the principles of sound waves and describes the propagation characteristics of electromagnetic waves. It also describes how to use antenna theory and basic electromagnetic theory to determine frequency propagation. This course is suitable for those who wish to learn the fundamentals of RF transmission and those who wish to know more about RF signal strengths and their effect on the quality of transmission. The final section of the training focuses on the theory of emission and power functions and introduces you to the various electrical and electronic devices that make up an average household.
