A computer program written to predict the effective service area of a transmitter in a VHF or UHF mobile radio network is described. The computed results enable field strength contours to be determined, and hence provide more useful information than is possible by reference to standard statistical curves. Present manual methods of calculating the attenuation to be expected over transmission paths rely on the laborious extraction of essential ground profile information along the path joining the… CONTINUE READING
