Abstract:

This report describes a computer method for predicting long-term median transmission loss over irregular terrain. The method is applicable for radio frequencies above 20 MHz and may be used either with detailed terrain profiles for actual paths or with profiles that are representative of median terrain characteristics for a given area. Estimates of variability in time and with location, and a method for computing service probability, are included.
