Outline

Outline

  • Overview – propagation models

  • RRC propagation curves/tables

  • RRC propagation zones

  • Propagation prediction method

  • Propagation for other services

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Propagation models

Propagation models

  • Path specific

    • Terrain data

    • Time consuming

    • Accurate but no agreed methods for broadcasting

  • Path general

    • General terrain data required (effective heights)

    • Fast easy to use

    • ITU conference (ITU-R P 370, 529, 1146 and 1546)

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


One propagation model

One propagation model!

  • ITU-R P.1546 replaces

    • ITU-R P.370 (BC VHF/UHF)

    • ITU-R P.529 (LM VHF/UHF)

    • ITU-R P.1146 (LM & BC, 1-3 GHz)

  • Path general methods

  • 30 MHz – 3000 MHz

  • 1 km – 1000 km

  • 1% - 50% percentage of time

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Rrc propagation model

RRC propagation model

  • Set of propagation curves/tables of field strength (dBu) vs distance (km)

    • Heights of transmitting/base antenna

    • 100, 600 and 2000 MHz

    • 1%, 10% and 50%

    • Receiving antenna height of 10m in open area

  • Detailed inter/extrapolation procedures

    • Other percentage of time

    • Other frequencies

    • Other transmitting/base antenna heights

Propagation prediction method

Propagation prediction method

  • Maximum field strength values

  • Determine transmitting/base antenna height

  • Interpolation of field strength as a function of

    • Transmitting/base height h1

    • Distance

    • Frequency

    • Percentage of time

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Propagation prediction method 2

Propagation prediction method (2)

  • Mixed paths

  • Correction for receiving/mobile antenna height

  • Correction of terrain clearance angle

  • Location variability in land area-coverage prediction

  • FS prediction in 16 easy steps!!!!

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Transmitting base antenna height h 1

Transmitting/base antenna height h1

  • Land paths >= 15 km

    • h1= heff (height over average terrain 3-15 km)

  • Land paths < 15 km

    • h1=ha (height of the mast) for d<=3km

    • h1= ha + (heff-ha)(d-3)/12 for 3 <d<15 km

  • Sea paths

    • h1= heff for h1 >=1 m

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Field strength for a height h 1

Field strength for a height h1

  • h1 <> 10, 20, 75,….., 1200 m

  • h1 in the range 10 – 3000 m

    E = Einf +

    (Esup-Einf)log(h1/hinf)/log(hsup/hinf)

    • hinf = 600 ifh1> 1200

    • hsup = 1200 ifh1> 1200

  • h1 in the range 0 – 10 m

  • Negative h1 (terrain clearance angle)

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Field strength f distance

Field strength = f (distance)

  • If d does not coincide with one of the tabulation distances

    E = Einf +

    (Esup-Einf)log(d/dinf)/log(dsup/dinf)

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Field strength f frequency

Field strength = f (frequency)

  • If freq does not coincide with one of the nominal values (100, 600)

    E = Einf +

    (Esup-Einf)log(f/finf)/log(fsup/finf)

RRC information meeting and workshop

Dakar, Senegal 25-29 April 2005


Mixed path consideration

ITU-R P.370

Based on percentage of land and sea path

Shows unrealistic “recovery effect”

Sea curves show large variation wrt effective heights

RRC (P.1546)

Longest contiguous path is important (breaking down ducting)

Avoid “recovery effect”

Consistent set of sea curves

Mixed path consideration
