Abstract

Telecommunication is omnipresent today. Nearly every household in the western world owns several radios and most of the families have at least one television set. In some countries, for example, in Scandinavia, already in 2003 the number of customers having exclusively a mobile phone contract exceeded the number of cable based subscriptions. Further wireless telecommunication systems are pushing into the market trying to gain ground and customers. The latest success stories of smartphones lead by the famous iPhone clearly underline the importance of terrestrial telecommunication systems.
