Two models of mobile radio wave propagation over buildings are presented. The first, the flat edge model, provides a simple yet accurate representation when buildings are assumed to be of constant height and spacing. The second model combines the first with a rapid new method of calculating multiple edge diffraction to allow deterministic predictions with arbitrary buildings and spacings. This allows predictions to be made with real building data, and the effect of building variations on location variability of the received signal to be assessed. Both models are compared with measurements made in suburban areas in the 900 and 1800 MHz bands and excellent agreement is obtained
