DAB Player

Radio mobile

Radio Mobile is a free software from Roger Coudé that implements Longley-Rice ITM model to estimate DAB coverage. It can be used with NASA SRTM free terrain model and can use different antenna pattern. The result can be displayed on map or exported as Google Earth format. Model uses terrain height but doesn't take into account buildings and reflections so it is a rough estimation.

Parameters for estimating DAB coverage should be set to:

  • Broadcast, location probability 95%
  • Receiver height 1.5m
