Wireless Communication, The Internet Radio Station
anything wireless This podcast covers wireless communication in all its aspects. Topics range from research issues to business and regulatory aspects, from radio wave propagation and multipath reception to wireless computing and multimedia applications, from rural telephony to mass-market television broadcasting, from radio receiver design and coding theory to telecom market predictions, spectrum scarcity, and frequency auctions.
