  • Often there will be complete attenuation, that is no signal will pass when the gate is closed.
  • In some circumstances complete attenuation is not desired and the range can be changed.
  • The amount of attenuation when the gate is closed can be set by the Range control.
  • This in turn has a positive effect on the attenuation of the signal and its range.
  • The attenuation mechanism as described here is only one amongst many others.

  • The result is that radio waves can propagate well beyond their intended service area with less than normal attenuation.
  • If the attenuation term is complex it also describes the relative time a signal takes to get through the channel.
