Paper Abstract

The traditional manual method of path profile analysis is very time consuming and takes approximately 20 - 30 minutes for each path. With the advent of digital terrain data and high-speed computing, this process can be readily automated and the time for each path reduced to a fraction of a second. The calculation of point-to-point losses, however, still presents the user with limited information, and does not readily advise the planner of the coverage of a given transmitter. In this paper, we present a new approach based on area planning.
