Abstract:

This report concludes a two-year investigation into the limitations of the VHFUHF radio communications during military operations in a built-up area MOBACOBA. VHFUHF propagation measurements, made in a suburban and an urban area, are presented and analyzed. A prediction model for mobile radio path loss in built-up areas when using ground level antennas is presented. Data are also given for path loss within and between buildings. Space and field diversity measurement data are given and correlation coefficients are analyzed. An approach to active antenna design is presented. Author
