Path Loss definition in WinProp

Recommended Posts

When I display a Path Loss result in WinProp, it looks as if the antenna pattern is still visible in there. Shouldn't path loss be independent of the antenna gain in any given direction? It should only depend on geometry and materials and frequency, right?

In WinProp, the Path Loss indeed includes the Antenna Gain. This may not be intuitive, but it's the way it was implemented. You can easily obtain the path loss you (questioner) expects by working with an isotropic antenna (Gain = 0 dB in all directions).
