Calculation of mean field strength for urban mobile radio has been made on a ray-theoretical basis assuming an ideal city structure with uniform building heights. The result shows that building height, street width, and street orientation as well as mobile station antenna height are controlling propagation parameters in addition to the ordinary factors. The major theoretical characteristics agree approximately with experimental data including conventional empirical predictions. This suggests a way of theoretically predicting mean field strength in an urban area.
