Reply To: Free space pathloss model


Dear Naser,

In the code there is no restriction about the carrier frequency used as input in the path-loss model. However I suggest to be careful, because each pathloss model is parametrized for a specific range of frequencies. In the case of free-space pathloss, by increasing the frequency, the losses will increase because the antenna gain is kept the same. In theory, with higher frequencies the antenna aperture decreases, meaning that less energy is being captured with the smaller antenna.

Best regards,
