The design of a mobile or portable radio communications system requires the consideration of a number of unique engineering factors which do not necessarily apply to the design of a fixed, or point-to-point system. The design procedure is a combination of theoretical and empirical methods, which when taken with measured data, produce a system design meeting the required specifications. This paper will treat that portion of the system design pertaining to radio frequency propagation and system coverage. It stresses a realistic measurement program which will provide coverage data in support of the system design.
