Tropospheric propagation tutorial includes:Tropospheric propagationTroposcatter communicationsOne useful form of radio communications technology for applications where path lengths of around 800 km are needed is known as tropospheric scatter or troposcatter. It is a reliable form of radio communications link that can be used regardless of the prevailing tropospheric conditions.

Researchers have found that sperm retains its viability in microgravity, opening up the possibility of creating space sperm banks.June 24, 2019A new preliminary study has found that microgravity appears to have little or no effect on the viability of human sperm. This is not only interesting but also shows that it should be possible to transport and store male gametes in space.
FET, Field Effect Transistor, Tutorial Includes:FET basicsFET specsJFETMOSFETDual gate MOSFETPower MOSFETMESFET / GaAs FETHEMT & PHEMTFinFET technologyFET datasheets contain a host of different parameters and specifications which define the performance of the particular FET type.When developing a new circuit or replacing an existing FET it is important to understand the different parameters and specifications that appear in the datasheets so that the correct device can be chosen and used.
Last year the Zweibrücken Observatory in Germany was overhauled into a huge replica of R2-D2.October 21, 2019There are Star Wars fans and then there are super Star Wars fans.Professor Hubert Zitt at the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany clearly lands in the latter camp. Last year he and a small team he enlisted including Horst Helle, his father-in-law, Klaus Ruffing, the German painter and student volunteers overhauled the Zweibrücken Observatory into a huge version of R2-D2, the beloved droid from the smash-hit movies.
