a[0]=1;
a[1]=0.99/50000;
H[w_] := 20Log[10,Sum[a[k] Exp[I 2Pi w(-k)], {k,0,1}]];
Once you clean up the syntax and avoid deleting the definition of H
before the Plot command, you still have the problem that your
function is, in general, complex. For example,
Table[{w, H[w]}, {w,1,1.5, .1}]//ColumnForm
You can either plot its real part:
Plot[Re[H[w]], {w, 1, 100}];
plot its absolute value:
Plot[Abs[H[w]], {w, 1, 100}];
or, plot its value at integer values of w:
ListPlot[Table[H[w], {w, 1, 100}]];
