Near ground radio wave propagation is examined in a tropical plantation experimentally at VHF and UHF bands. The propagation loss with forest depth is empirically analyzed using an integrated model combining both the foliage induced effect and the ground effect. Several well-known empirical foliage models are compared and analyzed. It is observed that the fitted ITU-R model taking into account the ground reflection, can provide a close approximation to the path loss in a tropical palm… CONTINUE READING
