a) The problem posed by large antenna size in case of audio communication can be solved by the amplification process.
b) 20 dB-Hz bandwidth corresponds to 1000 Hz.
c) The load impedance of an open ended transmission line is less than 400?.
d) The AM and FM demodulators are in essence the same except for their frequency bandwidth.
e) FDM and WDM are in essence the same.
f) The only benefit of satellite radio transmission is its digital signal handling capacity.
g) H-plane T structure can be employed for summing two signals.
h) The best method of joining two optical fiber is soldering.
