Abstract

We have performed data reductions on 900-MHz signal attenuations measured on numerous streets in Manhattan. The data base consists of both local spatial averages of signal attenuation and the short-term fluctuation about this average. The former, which we call the local mean attenuation, (IMA), is our primary focus. We use the data base to obtain contours of constant LMA for two neighborhoods in Manhattan, and we develop a simple theory to explain and predict the convex-diamond shapes of these contours. Moreover, we propose that the squares inscribed within the convex-diamond contours be used as the "building blocks" of microcellular environments. We also discuss short-term fluctuations, extensions to other frequencies and environments, and microcell layout.
