Path loss models

Egli's model is appropriate for macrocellular systems, with carrier frequencies above 30 MHz.

Hata's model has been derived from curves plotted by Okumura. The model is appropriate for macrocellular system, with propagation distances between 1 and 20 km, frequencies between 150 and 1,000 MHz, base station antenna heights from 30 to 200 meter and mobile antenna heights from 1 to 10 meters.

Cost 231 - Hata extends Hata's model to 2 GHz.
