Frequencies in the UHF range normally propagate by means of:
A. Ground waves.
B. Sky waves.
C. Surface waves.
D. Space waves.
The signals having Ultra High Frequency(UHF) can propagate through Space waves. These can neither travel along the trajectory of ground as shown in green nor can propagate by reflection in the ionosphere as shown in figure in red. The UHF signal propagates as shown in Blue in the figure.

The maximum frequency for reflection of sky waves from a certain layer of the ionosphere is found to be fmax = 9(Nmax)1/2, where Nmax is the maximum electron density at that layer of the ionosphere. On a certain day it is observed that signals of frequencies higher than 5MHz are not received by reflection from the F1 layer of the ionosphere while signals of frequencies higher than 8MHz are not received by reflection from the F2 layer of the ionosphere. Estimate the maximum electron densities of the F1 and F2 layers on that day.Physics - Exemplar

A 50 MHz sky wave takes 4.04 ms- to reach a receiver via re-transmission from a satellite 600 km above earth’s surface. Assuming re-transmission time by satellite negligible, find the distance between source and receiver. If communication between the two was to be done by Line of Sight (LOS) method, what should size and placement of receiving and transmitting antenna be?Physics - Exemplar
(i) The intensity of a light pulse travelling along a communication channel decreases exponentially with distance x according to the relation I = Ioe–αx, where Io is the intensity at x = 0 and α is the attenuation constant.
