explain why microwaves are better carriers of signals for long range transmission of radio waves?

  • physics -

    Their relatively short wavelengths (typically a few centimeters) allows the beams to be focused onto receiving antennas or geographic regions, greatly reducing beam power needed for detection. Microwaves are also transmitted effectively through clouds, making them ideal for overland-relay or satellite-to-ground communication.
