In this paper, the character of the propagation in the microcellular urban and suburban environments in the 902-928-MHz frequency band in line-of-sight (LOS) conditions is investigated both theoretically and experimentally for the purpose of wireless radio local loop (WRLL) prediction. The path-loss characteristics and the range of a break point, at which the polynomial character of field intensity decay along the street level is changed, are analyzed for various parameters of street widths, for different average building heights, and for the actual electrical impedance properties of building walls. A mult is] it waveguide with randomly distributed gaps between the sides of buildings is considered as a model of straight streets. Results of experiments for VHF/UHF wave propagation along the straight streets in urban environment in the conditions of direct visibility between receiver and transmitter are compared with theoretical analysis of field intensity decay, path-loss distribution, and dependence of the break point on street topography in LOS conditions.
