Abstract:Atmospheric propagation is very effective on the performance of the wireless, mobile, radar, and communication systems. In this paper different atmospheric models are constructed under different atmospheric conditions. The performance of a GSM mobile communication is tested under different atmospheric models. From the obtained results, it is noticed that the coverage of the mobile system antenna is changed highly if the refractive index model of certain country is changed. It is concluded that the atmospheric propagation is very essential parameter to be taken into account when the siting of a mobile GSM network is to be evaluated and designed. This study will be very useful in order to predict the performance of ground radio and airborne systems.
