Radio Propagation simulation program which operates over the frequency
range of 20MHz to 20GHz. It is based on the ITS (Longley-Rice) propagation
The program enables elevation maps to be drawn of specified areas using
downloaded SRTM data from the
Radar Terrain Mapping Mission, elevation
contours and road maps to be added, and Radio Units (stations) specified for
performance and placed where
Individual Radio Unit
performance is specified as a Radio
power, sensitivity, antenna parameters etc. and all
between Units can be examined for path profile and signal parameters.
Signal coverage patterns
can be produced for each separate Radio Unit if required. The
'Best Sites' to provide
radio coverage to a number of specified Radio Unit locations can also be
found by using the
'Find Best Sites'
The performance of a Radio Unit which is traversing a defined
on the map can also be generated by the
feature. It is also possible to use the
waypoint data with the 'Best Sites'
feature, to find the best locations to provide full Route radio coverage.
'Best Unit' from a
defined selection of Units which gives the maximum signal level and also a
defined Signal to Interference ratio at a specific
location may also be plotted. The combined Radio coverage from a selected
number of Units is also available. The sum of
all signals from multiple Units at each
location can also be plotted if required.
By using the
'Combined Cartesian Coverage plots'
you are able to produce field strength (dBµV/m)
and signal plots (µV, dBm or S unit) over the map area from any Unit,
and optionally provide a cursor location signal level readout by using the

Many new features have been
added to the program since 2003. These enable much faster evaluations of radio
networks and scenarios to be tested before trying out on the ground.

April 2006:- Site
testing of locations generated by 'Find
Best Sites' utilising the
Waypoints used in the 'Route
Radio Coverage' feature, showed an incredible consistency with the predicted
performance! This was confirmed during the two events covered by these
UHF Repeater sites in April and May.
