The UMTS macrocell downlink capacity is evaluated for macrocells that operate at the same frequency of the Deep Space Network (DSN) and that are near shaded DSN installations. It has been found that the downlink capacity is not affected when the distance between the DSN installations and the macro-cell is more than 35 km. For a distance greater than the obstacle distance, the effect of the DSN is less compared with the un-shaded case.
