1. Added Longley-Rice propagation model for coverage prediction in mobile projects.


2. The feature of frequency planning has been improved. The maximum number of frequency groups has been increased up to 20. In addition, the use of coincident frequencies in different groups is now allowed; in the frequency plan table, these frequencies will be highlighted in the same color.


3. Added the ability to exclude water surfaces from the predicted coverage and thus determine the area covered in square kilometers (miles) excluding water bodies.


4. A few minor fixes.


Sample projects have been updated. You can re-download and reinstall the trial version; the day counter has been reset.

1. Added a feature of saving the coverage prediction to CSV file and MapInfo Exchange file (MIF + MID) for further coverage analysis in various GIS applications. For more details, see the updated User Manual.

2. Added "US Topo" and "US Topo Imagery" base maps. In order for the list of maps to be updated, click "Reset to default" in the Base maps setting after reinstalling the program.

We continue to update the digital elevation matrix (DEM) for MLinkPlanner and RadioPlanner. In addition to the recent massive update, we have replaced SRTM1 Worldwide Elevation Data with ALOS World 3D - 30m (AW3D30) for South America, Africa, Asia, Middle, and Far East regions.

ALOS World 3D - 30m (AW3D30) is a 30-meter resolution DEM captured by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). https://www.eorc.jaxa.jp/ALOS/en/aw3d30/

Recently, this DEM has been made available to the public.


This DEM has higher accuracy compared to SRTM1, which was previously used for these regions. This will allow for more reliable coverage and link predictions.


It is the most precise global-scale elevation data now:

Coverage

South America:

Asia, Middle, and Far East regions:

Africa and Persian Gulf:


Attention! To use this new DEM you need to delete the old DEM cache files that are stored on the computer.


For MLinkPlanner please clean the folder: C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\MLinkPlanner2\data\


For RadioPlanner please clean the folder:

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\RadioPlanner\data\
