Signal

To convey information through a firm's actions. The more costly it is to provide a signal, the more credibility it has. For example, to call a press conference and tell everyone that the firm's prospects have improved is less effective than saying the same thing and raising the dividend.

Signal

An indication of a company's health and/or actions. Signaling a certain state or action may cause a company's stock to rise or fall in price. Generally speaking, the more money a signal costs a company to make, the stronger the signal is thought to be. For example, a company may make a statement indicating financial distress, but reducing its dividends is thought to be a stronger signal.

signal

To provide information to. For example, an unexpected dividend increase may signal investors that a firm's directors are more optimistic about future profits than previously thought. Likewise, the announcement of a new equity issue may signal investors that directors consider a firm's stock to be fully valued.

In (2), [E.sub.sHP], [E.sub.sVP], [E.sub.dHP], and [E.sub.dVP] denote the horizontal polarized and vertical polarized component of single reflected wave and double reflected wave, respectively, where [DELTA][[tau].sub.s] and [DELTA][[tau].sub.d] denote the extra delay of reflection compared with LOS signal. We have to note that the extra transmission LOS signals is ignored since the additional path is much smaller compared with the distance between satellite and the receiver.
