Radio propagation prediction for passenger rail operations using sub-UHF frequencies can be a complex matter. While propagation models and data containing terrain and obstruction information can be used to predict radio coverage, unique methodologies are required to accurately plan and implement rail communication systems. Federally-mandated Positive Train Control (PTC) system requirements rely on consistently available wireless communications, thus the imperative need to accurately design and construct radio networks to fulfill critical requirements.
