ABSTRACT
In the design of any cellular mobile system, the fundamental task is to predict the coverage of the proposed system. A wide variety of approaches have been developed over the years to predict coverageusing propagation models. Propagation models are useful for predicting signal attenuation or path loss which may be used as a controlling factor for system performance or coverage so as to achieve perfect reception. In this paper Asset’s path loss model for macro cells has been used and then the received signal strength is calculated to determine coverage. Section 1 introduces the cellular mobile system. Section 2 describes the propagation model. Path loss formula is discussed in section 3. Problem formulation andeffects of variation in antenna height, antenna power and antenna tilt on RF coverage area are described in section 4. Finally the best configuration to achieve largest coverage area is concluded in section 5.
