Estimate RF Data Rates and Effective Radiated Power with Esteem's RF Design Program

Are you considering a radio application but want to get an idea of the throughput you can potentially achieve in your application? Are you looking at a licensed radio application and want to confirm what your ERP (Effective Radiated Power) will be based on radio power output, the cabling type and length, and the antennas you're considering?

ESTeem has put together a great tool and instructions to meet this need.

The ESTeem RF Site Design Tool is a Microsoft Excel® spreadsheet that analyzes all the data gathered on the site during initial site work. The program automatically calculates the system gains, losses and heights and displays these values on the screen. Through comparisons from on-site measurements to calculated values, the calculated values tend to be more conservative.
