What is a coverage prediction ?

A coverage prediction involves running a computer simulation that uses digital topography maps to predict the affect of surrounding landscape on a broadcast signal.

Simply put it creates an estimate of signal strength at different instances from a broadcast site taking into account the surrounding landscape.


How accurate are coverage predictions ?

Like any predictions there are limitations, but they are accurate enough to be used as a guide. The only way to generate an actual coverage map is to perform a Field Strength Survey on-site.
