Now you have Radio Mobile installed it is time to make a frst analysis. This how-to is based on the initial example of Roger coudé on his website. This first example will show the VHF coverage of my QTH (Roger). We need the coordinates of my QTH in this how-to for the unit representing my QTH.
My QTH is St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Latitude 45° 16' - Longitude 73° 16'
To be able to do propagation caclculations we need elevation data. You can use the elevation data as you have configured it in Radio Mobile.
Launch Radio Mobile program. In "Files" menu, select "Map Properties", and enter the following values:
Click on the "Apply" button. Once data extraction is finished, the program will generate the following picture:
Use "Picture properties" to force "Gray scaled slope" mode.
Open "Unit properties" in the "Edit" menu and click on "Enter Latitude and Longitude". Fill as per the following:
Back to "Unit properties" insure that the unit is enabled and that a 38m elevation is shown before to apply, repeat for mobile:
Open "Network properties" in the "Files" menu and fill as per the following:
In "View" menu, select "Radio coverage polar" and complete form as per the following:
Click "Apply" button to obtain the resulting picture.
Congratulations with the result. Now you can find the coordinates of your favourite repeater and predict is't coverage.
