Defining the Second Base Station

Define the second site, place the second omnidirectional antenna at this location, and assign a carrier. The antenna is placed at a height of 2.5 m above ground.

The second antenna is placed at the intersection of the corridors (bottom, right) at a height of 2.5 m, see Figure 1. Use the same carrier for antenna 2 as was defined for antenna 1.

Figure 1. Location of the second antenna site.
  1. Specify the transmitter type and settings using one of the following workflows:
    • On the Project menu, click Sites > Site: New.
    • On the Project toolbar, click the Set Site icon.

    Figure 2. The Transmitter Type dialog.
  2. Use the default settings.
    Note: Use Omni Site (1 Cell/Sector) as only a single antenna is defined per site. This option does not imply an omnidirectional antenna.
  3. Click OK to close the Transmitter Type dialog.
    In the 2D view, the mouse cursor is displayed as a circle to indicate that the Set site tool is enabled.
  4. Click near point (X, Y) = (63.6700, -22.8800) in the 2D view to place the site.
    Tip: The coordinates at the current mouse cursor are displayed in the Status bar.
    The Site dialog is displayed.

  5. On the Site dialog, click on Site 2 Ant 1 to select and click Edit.
    The Cell dialog is displayed.

  6. Repeat Step 6 to Step 14 to specify the antenna and its carrier.
    Note: In this example, the same carrier is assigned to base station 2 as was assigned to base station 1.
