Greetings: There is so much good stuff on RF Cafe that there is no way to list or
link to all of it here. Please use the Search box or the Site
Map to find what you want - there is a good chance I have it. Thanks!
This 2-way path loss
calculator uses the familiar Friis equation for distance-related signal strength decrease, plus adds the loss due
to the radar cross-section of the target. As a rule of thumb, do not specify a distance (d) less than the
wavelength. Click here for more information on path loss. Click

The calculator originally on this page has been removed because of compatibility issues with outdated
Microsoft OWC components. A 2-Way Path Loss Calculator is included in
RF Cafe Calculator Workbook for FREE.
