The free-space path loss (FSPL) equation can be expressed as

P_{r}=[ (P_{t}G_{t}G_{r}) / L ] * [ 𝜆 / (4πd) ]^{2}

The last term L_{FS = } [ 𝜆 / (4πd) ]^{2} corresponds to the **propagation loss **in the free space. Unfortunately,

this model is not accurate enough in most cellular networks. Your first task is to find in the literature the

Hata model for small to medium sized city, large city, suburban area and open area (rural). Then, you

should plot (using MATLAB) LFS, LHata for distances [1km, 10km] and carrier frequency 900MHz.

Assume that the height of the mobile station is 1m and that of the base station is 8m.

Repeat your simulations for frequency 1800MHz. What kind of observation

can you make for the impact of frequency?

【General guidance】The answer provided below has been developed in a clear step by step manner.Step1/2Answer. \( \mathrm{{T}{h}{e}} \) Hata model is a widely used empirical model for estimating the path loss in cellular networks. The model takes into account the frequency, distance, height of the base station, and various environmental factors such as urban or rural areas.For the small to medium-sized city, large city, suburban area, and open area, the corresponding Hata models are:Small to medium-sized city: L(dB) = 69.55 + 26.16log10(f) - 13.82log10(hb) - (1.1*log10(f)-0.7)hm - (1.56log10(f)-0.8)Large city: L(dB) = 69.55 + 26.16log10(f) - 13.82log10(hb) - (1.1*log10(f)-0.7)hm - (1.56log10(f)-0.8)Suburban area: L(dB) = 69.55 + 26.16log10(f) - 13.82log10(hb) - (1.1*log10(f)-0.7)hm - (1.56log10(f)-0.8)Open area (rural): L(dB) = 92.44 + 20log10(d) + 20log10(f)where L is the path loss in dB, d is the distance in km, f is the carrier frequency in MHz, hb is the height of the base station in meters, and hm is the height of the mobile station in meters.Explanation\( \mathrm{{H}{e}{n}{c}{e},} \)this is required answer in step1Explanation:Please refer to ...
