Fresnel Zone

The Fresnel Zone is the ellipsoidal shaped region centered around the line of sight between between transmitter and receiver. The size of the ellipse is defined by the frequency and the distance between transmitter and receiver. 

In case of obstacles in this zone interferences in the received signal can be caused, to get an adequate signal strength at the receiver, the Fresnel zone  needs to be at least 60% clear of any obstructions.
