Following the standard approach envisioned by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), we consider database as a tool to plan the utilization of very high frequency/UHF spectrum by white space (WS) radios. Our approach, however, differs from the FCC one in the sense that the proposed geolocation database is not limited to process terrain information based on antenna height above average terrain (HAAT). Our primary contour prediction (PCP) algorithm processes detailed regional topographic… Expand
