Several tests have been carried out, which have shown that RadioPlanner can perform calculations for national-scale networks. The test study for a network whith 700 three-sector base stations on i7-8700 and 32 GB RAM took 50 minutes. The study radius for each sector was 20 km.


A study for 2400 sectors with a 50 km sector study radius on 64 GB RAM 2X E5 2690 was also successfully performed.


1. Added the ability to compare two coverage study results.

2. Added the ability to take into account the Rx threshold level for all coverage study types.

3. Added calculation uplink/downlink Rx power for a set of sensors with parameters specified in the Excel spreadsheet or CSV file. The result is also open in an Excel spreadsheet or CSV. It is a useful tool for estimating the uplink/downlink when placing LoRa, SigFox, and other IoT end-devices in different conditions.

4. Added a coverage area calculation in sq. km for different Rx power levels.

5. Added contour calculation according to ITU-R P.1546-6 for broadcast transmitters.

6. Optimized coverage save to the KMZ file, the saved file has become smaller.

7. Optimized export of all types of reports to Excel, now files open instantly.

8. A number of minor fixes and additions have been made.


More details in the updated User Manual.





1. A 64-bit version of the software has been added, which allows performing coverage study of a large number of base stations with high resolution. A 32-bit or 64-bit system is installed from the installation file automatically, depending on Windows type.

2. Minor fixes made to increase software stability.
