Greetings: There is so much good stuff on RF Cafe that there is no way to list or link to
all of it here. Please use the Search box or the Site Map
to find what you want - there is a good chance I have it here. Thanks!
1-Way (Radio) Path Loss Calculator
This 1-way path loss calculator uses the familiar Friis equation. It is applicable in the case of something like a transmitter broadcasting to a distant receiver. The transmission medium is assumed to be air in a line-of-site configuration.
As a rule of thumb, do not specify a distance (d) less than the wavelength or the results become unreliable.
The calculator originally on this page has been removed because of compatibility issues with outdated Microsoft OWC components. A 1-Way Path Loss Calculator is included in RF Cafe Calculator Workbook for FREE.
