With the increasing demand for microwave circuitry in both the consumer and industrial markets the engineering expertise to develop these techniques is becoming a key issue. The profusion of engineers now being faced with the problems of signal processing in the gigahertz frequency range is making a basic understanding of the principles an essential skill for all electronics engineers. Point to point digital radio, satellite TV, information systems, physiotherapy treatment and radar are just a few examples of this ever increasing application field. The author provides an insight into transmission principles in the SHF band and beyond. A lower limit of 3 GHz is assumed. The author considers waveguide propagation in the TE, TEM and TM modes. Construction practicalities, circular waveguides, health aspects and applications are discussed
