Propagation Graphics

The propagation graphics were based on the following mobile station. The model parameters were tuned to show what felt right. The graphics should only be used for comparison between the repeaters.

The amazing program Radio Mobile was used to calculate these graphics.

Transmit Power (watts) 5.0
Rx Sensitivity (uV) 1.0
Feed Line Loss (dB) .5
Antenna Gain (dBi) 2.15
Antenna Height (m) 2.0
