Wireless Theory and Regulations in Canada

A couple months ago at Muug I did a presentation on the basics of wireless theory and the Canadian regulations regarding unlicensed wireless usage. The first three quaters or so of the presentation covers the wireless theory, including things like decibels, radiation patterns, coaxial cable, fresnel zones, and more. In contrast to most other information sources, the regulations I cover in the last quater of the presentation are those created and enforced by Industry Canada who is responsible for wireless regulation in Canada. If you’d like to have a look at the slides from the presentation, they are availble in pptx and pdf format at the links below.
