Abstract : The object of this study was to develop a highly accurate long range computer program to do predictions of tropospheric radio transmission loss over irregular terrain. The computer program was to be easy to use with an input and output data format such that the user could use the program with little prior instruction. Signal strength calculation capability was also to be included in the program. The basis for the program theory was ESSA Research Report number ERL 67-ITS 67, 'Prediction of Tropospheric Radio Transmission Loss Over Irregular Terrain.' (Author)
