Give reason, why

Answer :

The main reason for using high frequency carrier waves for effective transmission of information signals is because it allows smaller antenna design.

Usually antenna length is given by L = wavelength/4

If carrier wave is not used, then for sending audio frequency of even 20 Hz, the antenna length would be


A high frequency carrier would significantly reduce the antenna length.


Range of frequencies for TV transmission are 76-88 MHz and420-890 MHz.

The range of transmission of TV signals can be increased by

(1) Increasing the height of transmission tower.

(2) Using repeater stations.
