Great explanation of multipath by Rabbit, who else?

Quote:

The ground clutter interference will cause scattering of the signal so that it presents a non-uniform wave front to the antenna. This non-uniform field makes the location of the antenna very critical,

It is also possible to have a non-uniform field in the vertical direction. Moving a UHF antenna a little as 6 inches up or down can make a difference.

Rabbit,

I have to hand it to you, that was the best explanation I've ever seen of multi path. I for one didn't get it to be honest. I think I'm getting the hang of what multipath means now.

Using those illustrations sealed the deal for me. Is Ken Nist still active?
