Coverage Maps

Coverage maps are a best guess estimate of repeater coverage. The reason it is a best guess is that no two ham stations or repeaters are alike. Also are you using a base station, mobile or handheld.

 

Receiver sensitivity varies, antenna gain and height varies, location varies for mobiles and handhelds as well as transmitter power and  loss figures for length and type of coax used.

 

Add to that the power output of the repeater, height and gain of the repeater antenna, hardline and duplexer loss and receiver sensitivity you can see how difficult it is to produce a coverage map that is accurate for everyone.

 

However, taking all these factors into consideration and using averages a reasonably accurate map can be produced.

The maps that follow use colors to represent the approximate signal strength in microvolts from the repeater using an average antenna and receiver. The legend is in the upper right corner of each map.

 

Remember that an S9 signal is considered to be 50 microvolts.
