A wireless engineer is troubleshooting signal degradation between two wireless antennas connecting over a distance. If no physical obstructions are found to be blocking the wireless signal, what is most likely the issue?

  • The polarization of the transmitting antenna does not match the polarization of the receiving antenna.
  • The gain of the transmitting antenna does not match the gain of the receiving antenna.
  • The polarization of the transmitting antenna is 3 dB less than the receiving antenna.
  • The transmitting and receiving antennas are mismatched and not providing a compatible radiation pattern.
Explanation & Hint:

In order for two wireless antennas to not suffer from signal degradation, the polarization of the transmitting antenna should match the polarization of the receiving antenna.
