*Note: Enter values in INPUT boxes and Press CALCULATE button to check OUTPUTS.

EXAMPLE of RF Propagation calculator:
INPUTS: Fr (MHz) = 850, Rx sensitivity = -106 dBm, Pt (Watts) = 5, Ht = 4.2 meters, Hr = 4.2 meters, Distance = 15 Km
OUTPUTS: Max. radio distance between Tx-Rx = 16.39 Km, Path Loss = 114.54 dB
