Propagation Studies

SCADA Propagation Studies

J & K is known for designing, supplying and servicing quality data and voice radio communication systems. We have performed numerous physical propagation studies in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky and even one physical propagation study on the island of Maui. This experience includes a wide variety of terrain and vegetation from very rural to large cities.

The physical portion of a study consists of transmitting a calibrated 150 MHz, 220 MHz, 450 MHz or 900 MHz MAS or Spread Spectrum (900 MHz or 2.4 GHz) signal from one end of every path. The transmitting antenna system will exhibit the same overall gain as the proposed systems locating the antenna in its proposed location.  J & K also offers 4.9 GHz and 5.8 GHz site surveys upon request.

The signal level is measured at the other end of the path at various heights at the exact proposed location. The optimum time of year to perform studies is during the season when leaves are fully developed, providing the highest resistance to RF propagation normally found through the year. These conditions facilitate the most accurate and useful study.
