This Terrain Data should be got from accurate Contour Map or from Actual Path Survey. Actual Obstruction Location, Height & Type should be get from Path Survey

How to enter Terrain Data & Obstruction?

2.3.1- Go to Terrain Data Page from Module Menu. Or by Pressing ctrl T

2.3.2- Enter you Terrain data according to Map Scale as shown in Fig. 2.3.2

Map Scale

2.3.3- Enter Obstructers by clicking on Structure position. Then choose structure type (Tree, Building or Water Tower). Enter this structure height in meters as per shown in Fig. 2.3.3

2.3.4- Repeat the above for the other obstacles

Fig. 2.3.3

After we entered Terrain Data & Obstacles Heights we have to find the suitable Antenna heights in each sites to grantee clear Line Of Sight (LOS) as the following steps

2.4.1- Go to Antenna Height page from Modules menu or by pressing ctrl A as shown in Fig. 2.4.1

Fig. 2.4.1

2.4.2- In Antenna Height page click on Optimize to get optimize antenna height for reference only as shown in Fig. 2.4.2


Fig. 2.4.2

2.4.3- The above Antenna is only for reference while the final antenna height will be decided according to the actual tower conditions & space availability

2.4.4- Go to Summary page & enter antenna heights which you think it will have clear LOS according to your path survey (mirror test or any other physical check) as shown in fig. 2.4.3

2.4.5- Go to Print Profile page from Module menu or by pressing ctrl P to confirm that link Fresnel zone has clear LOS above obstacles as shown in Fig. 2.4.5

2.4.6- If antennas heights which you entered still low to get clear LOS. Increase antenna height again according to available tower height till you get clear LOS with enough margin above obstacles
