Objectives The contents correspond to the first part of a basic electrodynamics course that introduces the basic concepts of the electrodynamics applied to the transmission of energy and information by means of electromagnetic fields. Firstly, the approximations used in the classical circuit theory are revised and its limits of application are established. The electromagnetic properties of the materials and the concepts associated with the transference of energy are introduced. Next, the most simple field configurations employed in communications are introduced and analyzed: the free-space waves (radio-communication) and the waves that can be guided by a pair of conductors (communication by means of transmission lines). Finally, the most important features of the electromagnetic waves propagation are analyzed: attenuation, distortion and delay.
