Example Overview

This example considers the application of analyzing base stations in a rural or suburban hilly terrain.

The 3D model of the rural/suburban environment is created by importing topography and clutter databases to allow for accurate predictions of the signal level.

The antenna patterns were obtained using AMan, but the steps on how to obtain the antenna pattern are not in the scope of this example.

Coverage plots are produced using ProMan to determine the cell phone coverage for two base stations set in hilly terrain. Two different propagation models are used, namely the dominant path model (DPM) and the deterministic two ray model (DTR).
