Abstract
A series of measurements of VHF and UHF radiowave path loss were carried out near Inuvik and Resolute, N.W.T., during 1976 and 1977. Transmitter sites were chosen to be fairly representative of those that would be selected for actual communications facilities. Measurements of pathloss, for various frequencies, polarizations, and transmitting and receiving antenna heights, were made at a number of receiving sites along several radials from each transmitter. Path lengths ranged from 1 to 100 km and covered land, water, and mixed types of terrain. The measurements have been used to construct empirical models of path loss for these areas, and to form a data base with which to compare the predictions of the CRC VHF/UHF propagation prediction computer program.
