Link Budget Calculations
Microwave Pro-2 also has a built in link budget system
analysis tool that can be used to generate complete link budget
reports. The 'wizard'
based interface allows the user to enter path information, transmitter power,
antenna gains, and other system gains and losses. The program will calculate
the EIRP, path loss, fade margin, and provide a minimum recommended fade margin.

Key Features of the new Microwave-Pro 2 include:
1.) Uses the NSMA OH Loss Model or Longley/Rice for path
2.) Studies now include outward and return paths and coordination analysis in a single study.
3.) Integrates V-Soft classic polygon mapping.
4.) Uses Dynamic Objective Calculations for non-standard
5.) Plots terrain profiles of all protected and interfering paths.
6.) Includes a large pattern library for specifying many common antenna patterns.
7.) Gives a graphical representation of both protected and interfering path geometry.
8.) Can search both license and application microwave databases.
9.) Performs frequency searches for the radio, TV BAS and Part 101 bands to determine available frequencies.
10.) Generates mergeable address information needed for PCN coordination letters.
Upgrades for existing users of
Microwave Pro-1 are available.
