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.

New Blog

I’ve sort of lost count, but I think by now I’m on the fifth or sixth iteration of this blog after having it offline for months at a time. This time the blog returns as static HTML compiled with Jekyll, previously it was Wordpress for a couple iterations and hand-written HTML before that. In addition to this blog I’m also starting a ham radio focused blog at I’ve also decided to make all the content on this blog that was created by me available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license, which means if you’d like to share or copy any of the information posted here you’re free to do so as long as you give credit and release it under the same license.
