In this paper, we use the Standard Propagation Model (SPM), as a path loss prediction model to analyze propagation characteristics of Managua city in order to implement coverage in a 3G-WCDMA network. SPM is integral part of propagation model used in today's radio network planning tools like ATOLL®. This contribution describes how the SPM can be calibrated and applied as a propagation model that can be used by a mobile network operator for the daily radio planning process in a certain area.
